"Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do."


A trial here, a problem there
a faulty friendship to repair
is all part of the way of life
won through hardships and bitter strife

The gift heaven has brought to us
trampled as if a speck of dust
because of frustration and stress
from those unworthy of life's test

but i won't act as others do
happiness is what i pursue
eternal joy as the reward
righteous in the eyes of the lord

A smile here, compliments there
positive feelings left from prayer
facing problems without complaint
learning to love instead of hate

I've learned to love life. No matter how hard life seems, things will always get better if you keep trying. Trials only make us stronger.

This is a really sweet poem.  I love it!  Relatable, too.  I love the line "but I won't act as others do  . . . happiness is what I pursue."  that's how everyone should think!  Beautiful work!

I really like this poem, it's beautiful and it reminds me of when I REALLY learned to love myself! :)
