It's Time To Wear Your Big Boy Pants

Updated on August 14, 2013

Don't Do What You Always Have Done

For years you only knew one way

Crying and getting upset seemed right

The trouble came and when it was gone

You thought you found a solution to your problem

Irrational thinking brings about the wrong answers

Your problem disappeared because you found a way

To change your outcome from bad to good

Your attitude made things worse

Complicated the issue and disguised it like

The clouds that hide the sun in the sky

The sun was going to come out no matter what you tried

So it had nothing to do with the size of each cloud

The shape of each cloud

Where the clouds come from

Where the clouds go

The facts are

The sun finds a way to shine so bright

Through every cloud that covers it's light

No matter how big

No matter what shape

The sun is living proof

The light will always find a way to escape

We can look in the sky and see miles and miles of clouds

They come from every direction known to man

They are enormous and there is no way to stop them

There is only one sun

Each day the sun shines bright as it has done

Sometimes the clouds will try to hold the sunlight back

As we all know the sun doesn't give up

It will shine so many times

Never giving in

It will always rise above every cloud and so shall we

If we realize we are smarter and we are no longer three

      Yes. The sun comes out and it always rises above the clouds and shines. This we can count on. We never question this fact or doubt that it won't happen. We should have this same unfaltering trust in our selves and in our ability to rise above the clouds we encounter in our lives from time to time. Your poem is beautiful and motivates us to never give emulate the sun and rise each day no matter the obstacles. Voted up and shared.
