What do you do When Plans go Asunder

What do you do when your plans go asunder,
What do you do when they all come to naught?
Don’t blame yourself, it’s okay to blunder,
Take heed, in life some mistakes are lessons taught.
Stop for a moment and cry if you must,
Smile through the teardrops and try to be brave,
Pick up the pieces and brush off the dust,
Then you move forward to battle the next wave.
Life is a battlefield where the toughest survive,
Don’t dwell on the problems and forget to have fun,
For though there are problems you still have to strive
To rise each morning and greet the rising sun.
Don’t let life problems get you down
Rise up stand tall and never frown.

This is my attempt at writing a sonnet. Thanks for reading. Please tell me what you think of it.

Be Grateful for the Little things

Be grateful for the little things
That make each day worthwhile
A friend who bring you flowers,
A loved one’s warming smile.
Remember to count your blessings
However great or small,
For they’re the silver lining
Whenever storm clouds call.
Appreciate the moment shared
With friends and family
As you pray for one another
or sip a cup of tea.
(Clay Harrison)

Allow no one to Break Your Self-confidence

She Rises From the Ashes

She rises from the ashes of her pain

It was not easy but she dug deep inside

and found an inner strength to get her through it.

Now she is not afraid to face her fears

She is not afraid to stand tall and shine

She holds her head high with confidence

And she will rise and keep on rising.

Poetry

I Can go on

I can go on, 

In spite of shattered dreams,

And broken promises, I can go on.

I can go on,

When all seems lost,

And sorrow seems to,

Fragment my heart, I can go on.

I can go on,

When pain seems to be

My best friend,

And joy threatens to subside, I can go on.

I can forget

The hurt of yesterday,

And embrace tomorrow,

Knowing that,

If I have love in my heart,

No matter what

May come my way,

I can and I will go on.
