Nobody said life would be easy
as it proves anything but plain.
No wonder you feel more than queasy
when life turns out to be your bane.
And still your life is what you care for,
what you accomplish every day.
You meet each minute that you spare for
some happiness along the way.
The cracks and bruises that you suffer
belong to wisdom as its ground.
You take each failure as a buffer
because it’s your life that you’ve found.
