How To Thrive When Others Whither Away

Look away don't be a victim of the insanity

Find a place deep inside that is peaceful and safe

When you have been stomped on and feel crushed

Remember when you were just plain happy

From nothing special or out of the ordinary in your life

You felt you were doing what was right without question

Take a deep breath

I know all your problems won't disappear

You will feel better

A guarantee I can deliver

Bring oxygen into your lungs and feel refreshed again


When we can not experience the love of life

Reality check is needed

All our lives we are going to have a series of ups and downs

Hopefully are ups will last a long long time

Are downs will soon fade away like water colors in the sun

We search for  what is important and what isn't ?

This is the only question to keep asking ourselves over and over again

It never gets out of date or filed and stored away

We have to do what we can

 Sometimes it is only a baby step in the right direction and never enough

That is when we relax and think of how far we have come

Always remember we are on a life journey

Not a day trip

When all things aren't done and finished by nights end

I am traveling in a new territory unfamiliar to me

Uncomfortable but neccessary at this time

I will hold my head up high

Look up into the wonderful blue sky

Think of where I will be

When I have figured out this new mystery
