My struggles, My lessons

My struggles,

falling to the ground

not being able to walk.

My lessons,

get back up

I can find a way. 


My struggles,

peers bully me

nasty rumours being spread.

My lessons,

do not let them affect me 

I can go on without them. 


My struggles,

parents divorce 

my world is upset.

My lessons,

realities change

I can find good in a new life.


My struggles, 

Never enough time for everything

an overwhelming feeling of anxiety.

My lessons,

this happens in life

I can take everything one step at a time.
