Life can be so hard

So full of pain and hardship

But the promise He

Will never leave nor forsake

Is our constant strong fortress

I really like this~ reminds me of my work "Perseverance!" I like how you spaced out the lines though, to give the poem more emphasis.

It's a form of poetry, you can look it up, it just has a syllable count.

yes, 'He' is Jesus =) Thank you for  your comment, most people think this is really short, but it's a Tanka, with the syllable count 5-7-5-7-7
