Poem - Tough Times

(March 13, 2009)

Behind the Poem: I wrote this based on a neighbor that had her leg removed at the knee.
Now she has an artificial leg and it inspired this poem thinking about how she probably is going through some tough times.
Then, I just kept thinking about all the people having money issues as well and everyone going through tough times, so this came out :)

Though there are tough times here and near
There still shines a brightness within
When times get tough and hopelessness sets in
Remember the strength lies within
To conquer, overcome, and come out above
For without this test
You’d never feel pain
You couldn’t truly appreciate the joy
You wouldn’t be alive
So take that baby step forward
For soon it will be miles
And know you are never alone
