Some things are really hard to remember
Like some of the answers to a life test
When we make a mistake we sometimes fall

I do not stay down whenever I fall
Forgive when others choose to remember
Only then will you have passed the true test

Many people will never pass this test
On their knees many will not choose to fall
The days are over that they remember

Remember life's test and you will not fall

For Andrea's Tritina Contest

Challenging and fun, hopefully I got it right.

    This reminds me of my old times, when all of my things were not going so right, I chose not to fall even it was hard, I tried to struggle and moved on :) glad to read this beautiful poem this morning, hug. Yanny

    Just got introduced to the blog icon and I read Andrea's description of this type of poetry. I think you got it down right! :) You are very gifted, my dear! All the best for the contest! Yup...still a chicken. I find that when I try to write on a certain theme or with a certain set of rules...the little inspiration I have just dries up! ;)

    Sometimes it is hard and other times it just comes to me.

    The advice is hard to accept but I believe God gives everyone the courage to act wisely and surrender... Many deep thoughts, Rick! You are blessed for all your unforgettable words! Love, Hanitra. And congratulations for all the wins and new challenges! Tritina!???
