Dealing With Disappointments
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Life can be unpredictable and cruel,
Never following our rules.

It's how we deal with our despair,we learn.
Poverty handled with humor helps.
Pain handled with strength and medication lol helps.

Life can dish out surprises.
How we handle things is Life's

...A practical expression....

The poem demonstrates the reality in true sense.The last line ..."How we handle things is life's Surprise" is a philosophical expression
