Lessons Learned

Posted by E. D. on March 1, 2015 at 9:25 PM

'When life gives you lemons...'

Yeah, we've heard it before

I'm tired of lemonade

But I've learned from my sores

When life gets colder

And I'm hit harder

If work gets rougher

Or just takes longer

My armor gets thicker

calluses get rougher

My muscles get bigger

I'm mentally tougher

Seems like I'm always fighting

Just waiting for release

From the worry, day and night

I'm still searching for peace

While I learn from every fall

Harden from each bruise

Somehow I take it all

And God is pulling me through

Despair replaced with Hope

Despondence with resolve

Amazed that I can still cope

And find that inner calm

Not sure what battle awaits

So I'm increasing my discipline

I need to be ready to face

The enemy as a guardian
