Difficult Day

Sunset Victory

What can I say,

About this day?

If my wish were a horse,

I’d have used force,

And just galloped away,

Have my way, and not stay.

But determination won,

And I didn’t run!

This day was not fun,

But now it’s done.

I didn’t give up!

I drank of its bitter cup,

And I came thru,

Battered ‘tis true,

A bit worse for the wear,

But I don’t care!

I didn’t taste defeat,

And Victory’s so sweet!

Keep Looking Up


“Everything happens for a reason”

Is what mother used to always say

“Today troubles may visit you”

“But tomorrow’s a new day”

” Always keep looking up”

“God will make a way”

“This too shall pass”

“Don’t dismay”

“Just trust,

N’ pray”
