What Life Takes

Updated on April 18, 2017
Look...just trust me, I'm a shrink who has some good advice...
Look...just trust me, I'm a shrink who has some good advice...


In order to meet life's longest list of requirements,

One such benevolent quality, that of our elasticity.

As do our endurance, toughness, internal fortitude,

These are each so beneficial, as having all tenacity.


All courage, valour, that confidence, of our bravery,

Provides willpower, determination, to see us through.

As so, our hearty steadfastness, strong-mindedness,

The stoutheartedness of our spirit, so important too!


It rewards us to be rugged, robust and all so powerful,

Also, as does the certainty, to reassure those doubtful.

Firmly established, that resolve, problems often solve.

Their vigorous approach, not to encroach, but absolve.


Supports the notion of all gritty, gallant, gutsy attitudes,

Promotes the ardent, tenacious, those able, aptitudes.

While the fervid, adroit, and the spirited are so inclined,

Viewing, all capable, solidly grounded, a peace of mind.

Now that I've explained what life takes for a  frog in the swamp, it's your turn to decide what it takes for you, too!
