Life's Gifts

Look how far you've come
It was not an easy ride
To reach this moment

Today you are changed
So different from who you were
Many years ago

Like has left its mark
In all of your being scars
That time cannot heal

Life has given you
The wounds in your heart and soul
The lines on your face

You have grown through them
Battled your way through life's trench
To be where you are

The struggle is far
From being over for you
It seems so endless

As you constantly
Wage a war with the darkness
That lurks inside you

Be not discouraged
You are stronger than you think
You can get through life

At the end of it
You will see how good it was
To have lived your life

Not all are given
The same life and privelege
To enjoy this journey

Accept all life's gifts
Embrace the pain learn through them
Find joy in living

Celebrate your life
Count not the years but moments
That make memories
