Just Because  (By T. Pina)

Just Because (By T. Pina)

A Poem by PENS FOR PEACE /TJ CALIFORNIA
"

A poem of inspiration to help one walk through a valley of despair

"

 

Just because

You've been stabbed through your heart once, doesn't mean you have to go out and destroy another.

 

Just because

You've been abused in life, doesn't mean you have to go out and abuse others.

 

Just because

 Others have turned your world up side down in pure misery,

doesn't mean you have to live in that misery forever.

 

Just because

You lived in a war torn world for so long, doesn't mean you have

to be a war monger!

 

Just because

A b*****d once broke your heart, doesn't mean you have to be

a heart breaker!

 

Just because

Disaster and grief has destroyed your entire world, doesn't mean you shouldn't try to comfort others that are going through their worst of times.

 Just because 

you have been treated like s**t in your life, doesn't mean you always have to throw it back at others and treat them the same! 

 

The cemeteries are full with people who have no problems, pain or strife.

No one ever promised us that this ride we call life, would ever be simple or nice.

 

Yet one thing is for sure in life and that's, greatness is not measured by how long you lived but by how you lived instead.

 

Tough times never last but tough people do.

Violence will always breed violence and hatred will always too.

 

The difference between dreamers and great ones is that the great ones can always perceive beyond their dark clouds of despair and struggles to see the rainbow of hope in their lives.

 

What goes around comes around, that has been written in the stars.

If you try to plant seeds of true love and kindness,

your blessing will never be far.

 

So be great in your life by dreaming way beyond human expectations.

 

Always, live life with passion, dare to believe in yourself and watch

your dreams come true.

 

If it happened to me my friend in my lifetime, then it most certainly will happen to you.

Author's Note

PENS FOR PEACE /TJ CALIFORNIA
My 2nd poem.
The first part was written to always remind me that nothing good ever breeds from violence or hatred (except the same) the 2nd part is just a ray of hope for all those going through pain and despair in their lives!

Every word the truth but this line especially caught my attention especially in the now that I am living.
"Tough times never last but tough people do." Dusting off my 'tough' as I leave here. I write often times as you have here, as a reminder to myself. I really enjoyed this. I am sorry I have not been able to drop in on you sooner. Have a great week.

Blessings,
Lesa

So true are your words so many go out to repeat
as they experience the difficult, which is totally opposite
of what one should do when they are hurt.
It's rather live and learn, and not do the same.
You've shared a really great piece of work
one that undermines the heart as they ought not do
but rather remind gently in words they ought do contrary
of what they went through, nothing good ever escalates from voilence and crime!!

Excellent writing!!
