Don’t Give Up

When you’ve tried your best,
Been challenged and tested,
And you’re still wading through the muck,
Don’t give up.

When your dreams aren’t handed,
To you on a silver platter,
And you feel like nothing matters,
Don’t give up.

When others tell you
How wonderful their lives are,
Know that they too have scars.
Don’t give up.

When sorrow hangs around,
Like a thorny crown,
And everybody tells you to smile,
Don’t give up.

Life is a series of tests
And tribulations
With an occasional vacation, so
Don’t give up.

The sun always shines,
After it’s been gone a while,
Know you’ll make it through your trials.
Don’t give up.

For others are watching you,
To see what you will do.
And if they see you make it through,
They might not give up.

Life’s Meaning

 

I have felt pressure,
I have known pain;

The darkening sun,
The advancement of rain;

Meaning of Life

 

The drops of doubt,
The sting of fear;

The awful regrets,
The loss of ones dear;

And I have wondered,
The reasons why;

The pangs of pain sting,
And the woes of hearts cry;

But then I remembered,
The awakening within;

The dawning of love,
The forgiveness of sin;

And I came to accept,
And to understand;

That all of our days,
Are held in God’s hands;

The good and the bad,
The struggles, the strife;

Are all building blocks,
A composite of life;

For it is the passions,
The pains, the chagrin;

That have made me seek light,
To find hope once again!
