As the days go by I’ve learned not to run.
Breath in the present and stand firm,
don’t let a spectator steer your fate.
Life may not be forever sunny-
There is no ultimate promise of happiness.
Looking within yourself and discovering the will to fight.
Becoming your own reason to smile
That is the most rewarding way to live.
Stop letting the naysayers tear you a part.
Today is not tomorrow –
step by step, day by day.
Learn to not become overwhelmed.
As children strangers can become friends,
when we grow friends may turn into strangers.
Time seems simpler when we close our eyes and learn to trust ourselves.
