Strong soul

Updated on December 23, 2016

Life is colourful


Beauty surrounds us


Try to keep smiling

"Why?" we ask

When we cannot see

What has caused this pain

To continually be


Understanding lost

Your faith is torn

For the plans you had

You can only mourn


Know that with time

You can work it through

To be the person

That you once knew


Then with hope renewed

Your soul standing strong

Life's greatest challenges

Can be met head on

      Thankyou Happyboomernurse :) Sometimes in life, things do not go according to plan. Facing it head on and holding on to hope, gives you the strength to get through - to step back and re-evaluate.

      Nice. This has inspired me to write a few hubs like this myself, but not now, maybe at a later time.
