It's Up To Me

I get discouraged now and then

When there are clouds of gray,

Until I think about the things

That happened yesterday.

I do not mean the day before

Or those of months ago,

But all the yesterdays in which

I had the chance to grow.

I think of opportunities

That I allowed to die,

And those I took advantage of

Before they passed me by.

And I remember that the past

Presented quite a plight,

But somehow I endured it and

The future seemed all right.

And I remind myself that I

Am capable and free,

And my success and happiness

Are really up to me.

Strength and Courage

Author: Sylvia Kelly

It takes strength to be certain,

It takes courage to have doubts.

It takes strength to fit in,

It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to share a friend's pain,

It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to hide your own pain,

It takes courage to show it and deal with it.

It takes strength to stand guard,

It takes courage to let down your guard.

It takes strength to conquer,

It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to endure abuse,

It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone,

It takes courage to lean on a friend.

It takes strength to love,

It takes courage to beloved.

It takes strength to survive,

It takes courage to live.
