REACH FOR THE STARS

Sometimes there is such a bad storm, that we can’t imagine warm
sunshine.
At times life seems so bleak that no soothing words can make us feel
fine.

The dark, bleak times may not happen very often, usually even very
rare,
but when they strike it is like a bottomless pit has us dangling up
in the air.

We can’t seem to get our perspective on life , on our dreams, on our
identity,
but these are temporary times, we must remind ourselves this is not
eternity.

Hardship will follow us our whole lives, but these are not events
we can alter,
we must learn to draw strength from within, so that we try harder
not to falter.

This doesn’t mean that there will not be times, we are down and
feel pounded,
it just means that through our prior problems we have learned to
stay grounded.

Life can be very tough and sometimes the only way to survive is to
be tougher.
Heart-break and disappointments will always be there, but they could
be rougher.

Let the tears of disillusionment fall freely, then dry those eyes and
get prepared,
don’t let the effect of occasional defeat, keep you afraid and always
running scared.

Although life may not always be easy, it is the only one we have to
live this day,
there is no amount of disappointment that can force us to lay down
and just obey.

There really are stars and we have every right to reach for as many
as we desire,
it just takes courage and hope, and a desire not to give up, then
you start a fire.
