Poem about life



Strong, but not always so,

Strength built on life of woe.

Lessons learned often hard.

Life rebuilt from torn shard.

Never quit, kept up fight.

To friends often a plight.


Secret I wish to share,

I watched… always aware.

Looked to others mishaps,

And to their joys perhaps.

Mimicking those that work,

Those that didn’t… would shirk.


Not sudden, but day came,

All pain not borne in vane.

Slowly, recouped spirit

Patched life, gaining merit

Confidence in self built

Wondrous life, patchwork quilt.
