Life and Trying


Todays hardships blended with yesterdays pain...
leaves questions for tomorrow that still remain.

Amidst our tears are desires and dreams...
to accomplish our goals...to acquire the means.

Perplexed and dismayed...give up - we will not...
We work even harder to keep what we'ce got.

Anxities attack...we conquer them all...
the challenges rush us...both great ones and small.

The strength that we have...the get up and go...
the realization that...it's often who you know.

So you give it your all...with schooling and such...
and as it pays off...you feel so in touch.

Success when it comes...you hope it to be...
something that is worthy of thee.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
