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,
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.
