The Lifes’ Walk

Life is a walk, a journey
Never feel sorry
For your very existence
Is ordained by Divine Providence

The way thru the jungle is grassy
The mists upon the way, tricky
But we must march on
Until the days work is done

The way is full of serpents
Goal destroyers, lifes’ saints
The mists might cover ditches
But nine could be saved by a stitch

The winter comes and goes
With the summer we sow
The hawks are awake to scout
For food, anything- snakes, rats

Tell the famished to wake
We must pass this lifes’ lake
Tell the sluggard to be strong
For lifes’ walk is still long

Be patient with life
Never with her strife
But be even hopeful
Never be one of slothful

Your dreams are Beautiful
Make it happen, it is wonderful
Do your very best
And for God, let the rest

When the sun rise
Lifes’ heat comes to abide
But if you stay without work
You shall have none to feed on

Now arise and strife
Rise with the suns strafe
Be soiled with the morning dew
But never let anything get to you

Things can only get better for those who believe. There is light after the tunnel. Don’t be discouraged by the current state of things, let that be the encouragement you need. The main focus in life must be focus itself. Determination aids, believe in yourself so be more confident. Try a little this and that and at the very end of the day dream on and never ever give up.
