“Endure it Well”

by | Feb 23, 2019 | Poetry | 0 comments

The test isn’t written, it isn’t in a school

But it shows who is wise and who is a fool

It doesn’t end with a finish line, no crown for being “cool”.

 

Hard times come to all, no matter the time,

The race, color, language or clime.

To those worth a million or only a dime.

 

Ailments to the healthy and the strong,

Death of a loved one, too early they’re gone,

The night is dark, but we’re promised a dawn

 

It comes down to a decision, where our thoughts dwell,

We choose our destination daily, heaven or hell,

To just simply endure, or to endure it well.
