Life, a wonderous secret

Trialed by time

Stages of wisdom attained

Are wrought with experience

And challenges, ever present

A chameleon in unexpected places

The purpose in life is not just to live

But to attempt and grow

To accept the hard times

Let them challenge you

Even discourage to the point of giving up

But remember, lying down is easy

The first step to the secret

Is continuing on

No matter how bleak the future

To make anew day worthwhile

Not for oneself, but another perhaps

There are certainly those whpo cannot persevere

There are those who simply lie down and die

An inner death, a living husk

And here lies the grreatest of trials

For setting aside one's own problems to rekindle

A determination

To some is ridiculous

But it is done, selflessly

The sacrifice, no matter how small

Blossoms an awakening to the lost

For life's secret is not first in the living

But also in the sharing and helping

So they can live too
