CHALLENGE BY JEAN NETTE


Life, I challenge you to try me,

Doom me to unending pain;

Stay my hand, becloud my vision,

Break my heart and then - again.


Shatter every dream I've cherished,

Fill my heart with ruthless fear;

Follow every smile that cheers me

With a bitter, blinding tear.


Thus I dare you; you can try me,

Seek to make me cringe and moan,

Still my unbound soul defies you,

I'll withstand you - and, alone!


*Life is always going to challenge you and break you down, so know that you will always come back stronger. Tell yourself that but most importantly, believe it.
