Strife

The journey of life begins,
With love and prosperity,
Giving us the feel of 
euphoria,
But then it takes its turn,
Bringing us down.
Takes away from us our 
love, 
Hatred proclaims its 
victory over life, 
Making our life nothing 
less than strife.
But you my friend, 
Smile.
Life is like a wave,
Having its crests and 
troughs.
Sometimes high,
sometimes low.
Very enjoyable is the ride 
when it is at its peak,
But,
Weak hearts fail,
When they face the harsh 
truth,
They lose their trail,
When they lose their love,
They are fragile,
You are not.
You are a fighter,
Fighting with life.
Crying at times,
But then wiping your 
tears,
Smiling at life.
Ready to move on,
With no complaints or 
regrets,
Just with a hope,
Someday somehow all 
will be right.
Till then keep up the fight.
Life itself will be proud of 
you.
