Life's Tug of War

        Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind
        Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind

        Life can be blissful and happy and free
        Life can put beauty in the things that you see

        Life can place challenges right at your feet
        Life can make good of the hardships that we meet

        Life can overwhelm you and make your head spin
        Life can reward those determined to win

        Life can be hurtful and not always fair
        Life can surround you with people who care

        Life clearly does offer its ups and its downs
        Life’s days can bring you both smiles and frowns

        Life teaches us to take the good with the bad
        Life is a mixture of happy and sad

        So . . . .

        Take the life that you have and give it your best
        Think positive, be happy let God do the rest

        Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet
        Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet

        To yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall
        Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all

        Take the love that you’re given and return it with care
        Have faith that when needed it will always be there

        Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see
        Take life’s simple pleasures let them set your heart free

        The idea here is simply to even the score
        As you are met and faced with Life’s Tug Of War
