Author: Capricorn


Life is sometimes such a struggle
Striding on then stumbling back
Life is fraught with constant troubles
Causing me to steer off track

Will I ever reach the summit
Of Life's mountain to find peace
Or will I find I cannot make it
And my troubles never cease

But if Life were always simple
With no challenges to face
Every time I had a stumble
I need not get up to keep the pace

Perhaps we're sent our tribulations
To build our courage on Life's way
So we can earn our celebrations
Instead of Life just giving them away

Think your right Barb, each problem you cope with gets you ready for the next.

Hmm......or possibly..

Yes that point was very good. But suppose each problem we face are not to prepare us for the worse, but for the better. If you think about it when something happens to someones they wish only for the better, and when ever a person recooperates from some struggle normally theyre exceedingly happy, even more than they may have been before.......well..more to say...but hey...wouldnt want to interject on someones own just a ghost......
