Struggles and Triumphs
I still cant believe,
How often we ignore our triumphs,
And how we just focus on our struggles.
How we can be so ungrateful sometimes,
Without even realizing it.
I used to be like that too,
Until I realized how many things I took for granted.
We often want our lives to be perfect,
We spend our all our lives perfecting it,
Trying to get rid of all our struggles,
Continuously being unthankful to God,
Until we realize,
That trying to get rid of all our struggles,
Is itself a struggle.
Not even a struggle,
Its something impossible to accomplish.
is a struggle,
If there weren't any struggles in life,
Why would there be a place called heaven?
So that’s why,
Its more important to stay grounded and be happy & carefree,
Than to fly up high in the sky.
Yes, there are days sometimes where we feel worthless,
And that’s okay
We might need a break sometimes,
A long vacation, a long shower, a walk in the nature, etc.
What's more important,
Is to come back stronger, be proud of our triumphs, and ignore struggles.
And to not let sadness last forever because,
Nothing dries sooner than a tear.
And never look back in the past,
And to not try to fly above everyone,
And get as high in as possible in the clouds,
Because that’s never going to make you happy,
Because everything we need,
Is on the ground.
