Tough Life

Tough Life short poem

When life is hard
And the going is tough
Steel your mind to stand up and fight
Do not despair,
For as long as there is life,
Hurdles are bound to be there,
Hold your head up high.
Praise the lord and get on your way,
Because everything is possible,
If only you believe in yourself.
Dream the impossible,
Fight a fair battle
You may fall a few times,
No matter, get up and walk
For the winner is always the one
Who has risen like the phoenix
From the dying embers of defeat.
