“Hang in There” (An Original Poem)
Like a boxer staggering
on the ropes,
don’t condemn yourself for being hit
praise yourself for fighting,
maintain your hopes.
You are a champion but sometimes
you must get out of the ring,
there are better things in life than boxing
And after winter comes the spring.
But after spring
the winter will come again you say,
perhaps, but perhaps not,
perhaps there will come a new day.
