A Poem To Live By

Updated on April 10, 2011


I wake up in the morning now and thank God for my day.

Even though some things are bad or not going to go away.

People dying, natural disasters, living in the streets

I still have my family and my health and food to eat

I may have some difficult times ahead, but cannot dwell on them

Time is really not what you make of it, it is how you respond to it.

My children surround me, night and day and I know I will protect them , God will give me a way

There are things going on in the world at this moment, i don't understand but can't let it overwhelm me

Please think, those of you who read this, to make sure you are right in your heart and ready for forbearance.

The days ahead will not be easy, but hold your head up high, don't let them get control

or tell you a reason why

We can't let them control us, no matter what will happen. We must depend on each other and not give in to temptation.

God will watch us and give us a way to fight the uncertainty that is coming our way.
