''Like Others Before You''

Some have tripped and fallen
but arose to walk the path
Some have faced the gauntlet
and survived the pelters' wrath

Some have reeled from punches
but bounced back to win the fight
Some have walked through darkness
and emerged bathed in the light

Some have lived in exile
with their faith their only friend
Some have faced destruction
but have triumphed in the end

Some have withstood trials
that most average men would fail
Some have beaten hopeless odds
o'er which none should prevail

Some have conquered illness
with naught but their inner will
some have kept their winner's smile
despite life's bitter pill

So when you find you're grieving
over life's unbalanced scale
think of those who've been through worse
...and lived to tell the tale!

Feeling sorry for yourself for all you're going through? This too and more have I endured and so, my friend, can you!

Let the solace come from knowing that it is the human will to survive and prosper that has helped others before you meet their trials and overcome them. Know too that you possess that same potential to overcome anything that befalls you no matter how small or large.
