Poem: Getting a Grip on Life

Get a grip

When things come against you

Chapters become lessons

About its value

Never let things weigh you down

We are being taught

Who or what is important

Then those things that have tried to crush you

Will be the things that will save you


Lessons have been learned

About why we are all here

To help

To teach

To learn


I have been going through a rough time trying to help someone close to our family. This person has been mentally abused by his neighbor. He even had the police there, but not much of that helped. This person has a mental condition. I have been feeling helpless and afraid. Even though this situation is hard to stomach, it has taught me about unconditional love. I just need the situation to ease up a bit so I can breathe more comfortably once again. Hoping for better days ahead!

  1. Good for you for helping others LaJenna. Be careful not to get so involved that is has a negative effect on you. Call for reinforcements, more help is you need it. Great poem by the way.
