The Storms of Life

Life is full of storms
both big and small
it's how they are faced
that determines our lives

To be able to meet each
and then overcome them
fills one with great pride
a sense of accomplishment

If now and then you stumble
that too is just life
so shake yourself down
never give in, carry on

Take each lesson learned
and from it take strength
to falter is only human
it's how we then deal with it

That lets us hold our heads high
all of life is a learning curve
we can stagnate or we can grow
the choice is in our own hands
