Bad To Better.


Sometimes in life

Something bad happens.

To deal with this

You can have three choices.

You may let it define you,

Or you could let it destroy you.

But what it can also do

Is to strengthen you,

And in that way

That experience

Can take you forward

Into the better life,

The better life you deserve.

    A fine write Gold.

    Help us to choose to be strengthened rather than to be defined (caged) or be destroyed by it. Ayaiyai!

      Thank you Rick.

      A self-help book by yourself is needed:
      Then ”See page seven four nine of my book”.
      But poems here would be superseded
      And MPS collapsed – not a good look.

      Stay on Andy – don’t go nowhere……

      • Goldfinch60

        I don’t intend to go anywhere soon Dave - or at all.


      • Thekkinkkattil

        Very true Andy and those who be come stronger are the real winners

          Ah' yes indeed the trilogy ..

          I would argue maybe not choices, as such, but I quite understand where you are coming from and the message contained herein ...

          Neville 🙂

            Tank you Neville.
