Here's a poem from my book; I wrote it a couple of years ago. I think it might apply to your current situation.

Donna Wood

Someone said, “this too shall pass”.
I know it to be true.
Life makes changes rough and vast,
But God will see me through.

Yes, at times I speak in haste
And I am often wrong.
Some actions are emotion-based,
And oh, my will is strong!

But I’ve learned, as I near the grave
To try and keep my peace.
Let other voices rant and rave.
Eventually, they’ll cease.

Examining my imperfections,
I’m a mortal soul.
And I will try to make corrections…
Yet remaining whole.

Through my life I’ve seized the words,
“To thine own self be true”.
To change it now would be absurd.
I’ve always wallowed through.

I would not change the life I lead,
Or person that I am.
I am supplied with all I need.
My life is not a sham.

The real friends will see me through.
The phony ones will go.
I’ll wait, and see what God will do…
And learn, and sing, and grow.

Donna, That's a beautiful poem. Do you mind if I print it and keep it on hand as a reminder?

Sure, all I ask is that you keep my name with it.

Thanks Donna, I'll be happy to let everyone know the author's name.
