Savor the Struggle

Think about the hardest thing
that’s crossed your path this year.

Then, think of someone in another sphere–
Compare to one or two out there…

Was it really hard or just a blip,
a hurdle, an insult, a busted lip?

If ultimately the toughest parts
reigned in your mind or around your heart,
You’re not alone–I’m right there, too
The pain, no doubt, feels rough and true
Infusing good with doubts and ache
Masking real with something fake.

Feel your hurt, calm the strain
learn what lesson songs refrain
Call a friend and cry aloud
Look for linings in the clouds.

We need the rain; we love the storm--
