    Have you often felt as though everyone was out to destroy you?
    It seem as if everyone you knew had their own agenda.
    Have you ever been kicked while you were already down?
    After receiving bad news, something came and threw another blow
    Have you ever cried out for help and your friends seem to all be deaf
    When everything was going well, everyone was there.
    But now that your have a need, the same people have vacated the premises.
    Often times our life plans never unfold the way we want them to.
    The people you thought would always be there are no longer there.
    The things you grew to depend upon are now a vapor.
    Have you been there? Are you there now?
    Life can be an interesting experience.
    People can love you today and hate you on tomorrow.
    Your finances can be awful today and overflowing tomorrow.
    I have learned that things change, as well as people.
    So I have decided to give it my all no matter what
    Whether I am up or down, happy or sad
    because it just takes a second for it all to turn around
    Where you see me at today is not my ending place
    I am a work in progress, an unfinished masterpiece
    And so are you my dearly beloved sister or brother
    So take faith in knowing that this too shall pass
    It is all just a part of your refining process
    After the fire you shall come forth as pure gold
    So hang on in there I know that you can make it

    Thank you for this! I love reading your pieces because, even with a sometimes underlying melancholy, your words are uplifting and inspiring, bolstering and supportive.

    Your spirit really shines through your pen.

    I didn't have the chance to comment on this piece when I first read it this morning, but you'll never know the uplifting feeling your words provided. I thank you, a million times over sister poetess.
