I'm a man of many failures
Man of many sorrows
Even through my darkest days
I try to see a better tomorrow
Knowing that what doesn't kill me
Will make me stronger
It might hurt me now
But once I decided to let go it hurt no longer
Because pain comes only when you allow
but I know I will be okay
Because my regrets I see no longer
Even though no body show me how
I knew I had to figure it out
And I had to knock it out
I needed change so I did it now
Life is not a race
And happiness is about the smile on your face
But don't be stuck in the first base
That's why my shoes is being lace
And I had to learn to live by grace
Because mistakes you can't erase
And I knew I had to pick up the pace
Or I will be stuck in one place
Now I'm not a man of many failures
Or a man of many sorrows
Because my yesterday taught me about my tomorrow
And my darkest hour helped me grow
Knowing my blessings doesn't come from blow
So now I stay clean white as snow
And waiting at the heavens door
Because I know when the time is right my cup will overflow


-Cheers, Maichael Yousa

        We continue learning and getting better. If you wand to edit look for the edit option. After editing you may have to renter the photo. Also to post the poem back you have to hit edit again which is confusing.
