Greatest Woe by MwsR

Sometimes the things that bring us joy

Bring also trouble and pain

Thoughts we had planned in our heads

Make us weary when they are changed,

Some of our greatest woes comes from that

While we are weary they alter our peace

Peace that we had until then

Our greatest woes often come from the thinking within

Sadness robs the happy man of control

He loses his smile and joy, when he tarries so

After all, what are smiles but upside down frowns!

More than not people live life in the past

Meaningless attempts, because nothing ever lasts

Why not live like there is only today?

As the saying goes, “Learn not to expect and you’ll never be disappointed.”

If we cannot achieve what we want,

We will settle, much to ourselves, its a loss

If disappointment can be a challenge,

Sorrow will come in yielding the sword that can kill.

Trouble will accumulate and bring with it his friends

Our life will be like a hostage, to that

Hope is not bad but it gives false security and bliss

It clings to our dreams and even our obscurities

It paints a false illusion,

Unless with the hope you can carry knowledge

Knowledge that things can alter at any moment,

And then after you collect your new perspective on things,

You can then come to a different hope.

Constantly re adjusting,

Forever changing,

Our greatest woes are defining

Just don’t let them take charge

Find ways of adapting, changing, and thinking.

Then our greatest woe won’t defeat us.
