Trouble But Not Defeat

By Byron Pulsifer

Underneath our feet we find
Those branches and thorns a grind.
Why is so life so mean
It is as if no other scene.

Through life, you know, you will find
We sometimes just close our minds.
Those solutions we so desperately want
All appear like yesterday’s many tyrants.

But, do not trouble or be dismayed
There are good days on the way.
When you look beyond the norm
You’ll find you need not conform.

Be bold, be happy, be confident
You are not meant to lament.
These things so sure today
Can vanish without delay.

So when trouble comes your way
Do not accept defeat and ruin your day
Move forward with a focused view
Stay positive in all you do.
