A Poem by Mirajane Strauss

When life hits you hard, remember you've had it harder...

I woke this morning with
An ache in my chest
It told of all
The distress ahead
Took a while
To see through the dark
I found out soon
It had no end
I wondered how I would
Live this day
'Till I remembered
I had slept last night
And woken up today
And I could
Not let that go to waste
All the dark and the black
Of years long gone
Nothing could be 
Worse than that
There may be lows 
And there may be highs
But today I honor those
Who brought me this far
So I begin this day
With a new hope in my heart
A light of my own
And the resolve to move on
