    I’ve learned life can be peculiar
    As many people like me know
    It can be like the 19th of July
    And you are standing in the snow
    Sometimes life’s fist takes a good swing
    And you must stand & take the blow
    I’ve learned if it does not kill you
    Then it will surely to help you grow

    So many people out to get you
    Callously step on your toe
    Some many offering direction
    Complicating the directions to go
    So many different circumstances
    Completely out of your control
    You try to embrace your highs
    While hoping to endure your lows

    As I stand and face you, Life
    I’m telling you I am not scared
    Even though you keep catching me
    At times when I am not prepared
    But I’ve taken my good with my bad
    And I like how well I have faired
    Grateful to the Lord, family, & friends
    Always knowing how much they’ve cared

    I know Life has tried to catch others
    This is the reason that I share
    I know Life has made others suffer
    Many have lived through their despair
    With virtues of hard work& patience
    Along with consistent faith & prayer
    Everyday becoming stronger
    Each day becoming more aware

    The pace of this piece, the rhythm is so smooth. And your message, to keep rolling with those punches no matter how fierce, your words just glimmer with hope.
