Life Is Worth Living


The road before you stretches long and wide.
So journey on with pride.
At times you'll hit a slide.

The crusade can be wild.
Give it all you've got,
and you won't have lost.
The risks are great.
The fruits of your labor
make the rewards even greater.
Life is worth living.

You've got to be strong.
Though it may seem a long way.
You'll find what you're looking for.
As you fight this war.

Remember who you are.
Treat all you meet
with love and kindness.
Don't be discreet.

At the journeys end.
Your wounds will mend.
You can say your life depends.
Caring for all the big and small.
You'll have shown that
adversity can't make you crawl.

So enjoy this life.
Get past all the strife.
It's worth all the
experiences that you'll have.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
