Life is Complicated


Life is guaranteed to
disappoint you,
but don't let it break you.


Sometimes love isn't fair,
but don't let your heart
become jaded
by a couple injustices.


Don't allow anyone
to steal your joy
or destroy your hope.


Don't give in to fear
or yield to worry
because they will
take away a part of you.


Life can be complicated
but you have so much strength;
you just need to harness it.


You may not have control
over the circumstances,
but you manage your attitude.


Stay firm in your convictions;
trust others but most of all
trust yourself.
