pain and sorrow

when life hands you pain and sorrow
hang on like there is no tomorrow
in a place where love is found
healing and comfort abound

strength it needed to conquer the task
do not cover up who you are with a mask
trust in those that know your heart now
for they hold the key to the healing and the how

do not try to solve the pain all alone
you will miss all the help you were shown
trust your heart while you still can survive
and with those that love you, you will thrive

Once you work through the sorrow and pain
life gives you lessons that help you grow and gain
all the knowledge that helps you to comprehend
about life and death and sorrow and pain in the end

there is no easy way through life, and no short cuts,
listen to yourself and follow your heart
while holding on to what you love dear
and in the end the message will be clear

Great poem, Michael, I like the theme of perseverence in it. Something we can all aspire to.

I also like the advice to ask for the help you need and then accept it and rely on it. Things really began to turn around for me once I allowed myself to do that.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
