Every Day Is A Struggle


To just keep going
Poetry helps me
It is helping me now

I had a dream
It did not come true
I must continue to live anyway

Courage means too
Admitting one’s failure
And not being broken by it

These lines are part of the effort
For today

But the day is long
And the time of living with disappointment
Years to come.

    Yes every day might be a struggle but we must continue
    even more to overcome them. Life can sometimes be an uphill
    climb. We must learn to take one day at a time and overcome
    each obstacle that comes our way. Things will get better then
    we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I invite you

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
