Picking up the broken pieces

Into this world
We all came
Naked we all were
Kicking and screaming
With no idea of our supposed duties
With no idea of the ways lives were lived

Somehow, somewhere
We all started
As a baby, learning we began
Smiling, crawling, standing, walking
And blowing it we discovered is'nt unusual
But a part of learning curve, it is

Appeal same to all
For no matter where one, at the moment is
Starting where one is, is the key
No matter how broken all might seems
Discouragement, depression, one must knock out
controlling one might not be able to, all that happens to one
But, one's reaction to shattering news can be

True it is
That by tough times, every person is affected
And learning we all should
Never to give up
Always sustaining and upholding one's hope
Always picking up the broken pieces of one's situation
Always marching on, making it happen

For problem never leaves one the way it finds one
Rather, tender or tough
It makes one
Better or bitter
Makes or breaks, it does
But, it all depends on your actions and reactions.
