The Philosophy of Strife
With days gone by it’s easy to see,
the future holds promise but where will you be?
Cherishing great successes may not be a fault,
unless it disarms you and your efforts halt.
A victory so sweet can err your judgment and be savored for life;
for Life is a challenge in favor of continued strife.
Fear not those days spotted with loses or failure;
Success is not prescribed for daily exposure.
To measure the difference, one must sample defeat;
the knowledge procured reverses retreat.
The building of character is in the big plan;
The foundation was laid in the creation of man.
The spirit within you has no desire to give up or die;
Thank God for this Blessing, and give it a try.
Look back on the yesterday’s only to build the tomorrows;
For to do so you will limit & even stifle your sorrows.
The loss of hope with inflated despair;
Brings one to refuge, for no one is there.
The tribute to man is not just that we care;
But rather to strengthen, build and repair.
American the beautiful, land of the free;
She leaves it up to you what you will be.
Opportunities abound, just open the door;
Welcome to the world of the entrepreneur! The Beginning…
