Get back your control in life and make choices

In the midst of darkness,
hope is the only light.
Everytime you fall,
get up for one last fight.

People will hate you,
some may despise you.
But all you need to care about,
is you

They will beat you, they will hurt you
they will try to pull you down
Get up on your feet and laugh at them
as if they are all clown

Its true, life ain't easy
Its true, life ain't fair,
But that's what makes it interesting
where every success, is like fresh air

Don't let others control your choices,
Don't let them hack!
Its your turn today,
get your control back.

Absolutely. At the end of the day, you are the one who will live with yourself. So why should any one else control your choice.

You know what? Whenever you're notifying me that you have a new poem up, I would always frantically search for it on your page because everytime you have a new masterpiece to share with us, that could only mean one word: INSPIRING.

Your poems are short yet very inspiring. It tells us that even when life isn't that easy, there's always a reason to be positive. Your poems give us hope when one is experiencing sorrow.

Thank you for such a very touching and inspiring poem. I like it.

Very realistic, down to earth, inspiring......., but my complaint is same ........hope you will work on technique too, proper balancing of words and rhyming will enhance beauty in your poetry and it will be PERFECT, over all it is very good & I loved it. Keep inspiring your readers.
