“Hang in There” (An Original Poem)
Like a boxer staggeringon 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.
