In the Midst

In the midst of something bad,

Remove your sorrows, choose to be glad,

When dealing with things out of your control,

Look deep inside yourself, search your soul,

Search for that hero that’s inside of you,

For that person you always wanted to,

That person as a child you wanted to become,

Or that character on tv that would see danger and run,

But not away, no they ran into the danger,

Not just for a friend, but a complete stranger,

So, pick yourself up from your lowest of lows,

Put a smile on your face, in the midst of the pain make sure it shows,

The trouble is only temporary, never permanent,

Place your pain in a hole and cover it with cement,

In a race, you jump over hurdles, not duck underneath,

Take a moment for yourself and control how you breathe,

See that you have more to offer, more to achieve,

Throw all of your troubles into the deepest of deep,

Regain your passion, your love for yourself,

Without love for you, how can you love someone else,

In the midst of it all, regain your strength,

Your life is not short, it contains great length!
