This is My Lesson to You

This is My Lesson to You

A Poem by Jessica Lima

When things go wrong,

Your world will turn cold...

 Please  stay strong!

And hold on to hope.


It can always get worse,

And life will accommodate.

I know it ain't fair

But learn to appreciate.


Turn empty pans upside-down,

And create your own beat.

Hit it hard using your anger,

But never give in to defeat.


When you are tired...DANCE.

You never know how much you can take.

Only pushing yourself you'll realize

The difference another step can make.

Quite motivational! A good reminder to go the extra mile. Two little notes: "And hold on to hope".....how about 'And on to hope hold" (that way you land the rhyme rather than cheat it....just a thought); "Hit it hard using your anger" is a bit of a mouthful...."with" instead of "using" might work better. Otherwise, you def have a gem here. Well done!

Thank You! Im mostly a negative nancy when I write... thought it was time for a change.
Very well-written and upbeat! "Turn empty pans upside-down, And create your own beat."-very wise words and love the musical reference. Life can be tough to say the least. Your message of hope and encouragement is so uplifting "Only pushing yourself you'll realize The difference another step can make." Brava and thanks!
