Sometimes, people will disappoint you, situations will disappoint you
and you will disappoint yourself
You know it’s not always favorable
You are tempted to complain and curse
Yet, remind yourself
Things are not always in our control
You can overcome all your problems
With a little bit of patience and time for yourself
Seek the comfort within,
There is immense tenderness in your heart
A child in you, ready to cheer up
To make your world warm and fuzzy
Only when you are ready
Sometimes, failure will look inevitable
No matter how hard you try
You will feel restless and confused
Because nothing seems to work out
The future seems to dwindle and hopes broken
And, you are waiting to give up
Still, you want to wait
Beneath that despair, you know there is a mighty courage
Never seen before
Never touched before
Never used before
There will be hardships and heartbreaks
But, thank yourself for once
You are at the rock bottom.
And, you cannot go any further
You will soon emerge, wiser and transformed
They shall make you more beautiful
In your thoughts and in your actions
Life is a gift, indeed
Come past the trivial things
Things that no longer serve you
Things that no longer make you happy
If you have come this far, beating every odd
Then, you aren’t a fragile one
For you, nothing can be overwhelming
You still have your weak moments.
But, they no longer bother you
You have come a long way, my friend
Don’t you realize that you have found your inner strength?
Don’t you realize that you are a free person?
Don’t you see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel?
