LIFE: A Sonnet

Life is indeed very short. Our time here on earth is limited, therefore we must make the most out of it. Instead of thinking negatively, we must choose to look on the bright side of life; positivity is the key to happiness. Also, we must always remember to trust in the Lord with all our heart. His plans are far greater than ours, and He would never give us a challenge that we won’t be able to get through.

Alas, I have had enough of these woes;

That constantly follow me every day.

Misery that makes my life glum and gray;

Makes my soul yearn for eternal repose.

Is this really how life is? No one knows,

For it has been planned and molded like clay

By the Lord who is far greater than they;

Greater than the trials that our life throws.

Thus I have come to realize something;

We must learn to live with the fire and ice

And learn to have hope in times of despair.

For life has many challenges to bring.

Be optimistic; that is my advice.

Know that what would get you through is prayer.
