I know there aren't believers.
But something or someone has helped me get through the years.

Whenever I think I'm down and out.
Fate or my beliefs help me get through.

Yes we all have had things that don't seem fair.
But for every tradegy we go through,
There is always something good that happens.
No matter how small.

This is just my view it's not a sermon.

I think a persons faith certainly helps them through bad times, whether it is fate or beliefs or whatever. I feel that some people have great strength of character to get through bad times. I think you are one such person, Barb. Hope you visit the Forum and look under Poems and Writings at the topic GREETINGS. Some people have been talking about you - nice thoughts though!!

Luc I justknow because I've seen if people have a negative attitude bad things happen more often. ones with positive attitudes bad things happen but they find even little things that gives a reason for it happening, Like if I wouldn't of had my tumour I would never have met you, cap, dreamer or seizure so keep writing and think about something good that happened because of your misfortune.
