Shadows


And lo though I walk through this life with no regret

the shadows they follow me still

the past is gone but unforgotten as yet

it lingers at the corners against my will

 

And lo though I walk knowing it is better now

the stitches of the wounds remain

to completely erase rewind forget somehow

these things I cannot yet attain

 

And lo though I walk in love and light

the darkness that once was creeps in and out

even though I resist with all my might

just  a little twinge just a little doubt

 

And lo though I walk renewed and stronger

the shadows remain just out of reach

wishing them gone to be here no longer

but there are still lessons they must teach

Strength


It is the struggles that makes us strong

the daily trials as we go along

tests of character and of mind

it is in these true strength we find

 

Though these times may seem so dark

life is never just a walk in the park

with each one we grow a little more

becoming stronger than before

 

While we walk in the trials we may feel weak

the things about which we do not speak

pushed down by the weight we fight to stand

every now and again with a helping hand

 

The trials we face the tests of the heart and soul

things over which we have no control

they give us strength they make us strong

able to face whatever this life brings along
