SURVIVE!

We all face challenges in life. How we act and our strength of character
will determine if we outlive the difficulties, or crash and burn.

Release
Pour out your heart to let go of hurt, anger, and questions.

Fight
Never give up, hold on, remain strong, grasp onto each ray of hope.

Anger
Manage emotion, don’t strike out, scream, or be violent; it’s self -destructive.

Conquer
Allow strength of spirit to defeat misgivings and fear as you rise to the top.

Questions
Why me, how’d this happen, who’s to blame, will it end? Ignore to win!

Overcome
Weary body, questioning soul, waning passion; still wage a battle to win.

Heal
Confess your unresolved issues and wrongdoing; it is good for the soul.

Forgive
Learn how to forgive? Forgive yourself, forgive others for inner peace.

Determination
Search for every opportunity, find the answer and achieve victory!

Alone
Reach out to others. We’ve all had problems; someone will be able to help.

Endurance
Persistence, tenacity, refusal to quit provides the fuel to finish the race!

SURVIVE!
It is up to you!

I love the contagious positive vibes! Thank you for your encouraging words, Sheila. This should be put in a wall for daily meditation... The presentation is impressive, too. I think you are the first one (that I know) who put a great deal of effort to beautify the structure, font, and background. Well done!

"Survive! It's up to you!"

This is an powerful line, though I'd choose 'live' instead of 'survive' because the former has more depth. Survival, I think, is more on 'existing' or 'not dying'.

And yet, it takes some wisdom to stand still for introspection - to take some time out to ponder and mull over what opportunity Life is presenting you in order for you to grow. Survival is essential but the journey you take to achieve it is a revelation of who you are and what you can be for others in order for them to achieve their purpose in life, too.

Thank you!! Yes, we can at least try to heed them!
I feel your words should be carved in stone like a talisman... something to touch for strength when we forget or are too overwrought to remember. It is a very uplifting poem Sheila.
