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.
