Things happen during your lifetime,
And not all of these things are fine.
Emotions can be fragile, ready to break,
A fleeting thought is all it may take.
Happy tears and sad tears, much the same,
Brought by relief, brought by pain.
A lump in your throat, hiding your fears,
Good news, bad news throughout the years.
No matter what eventuality comes along,
Must stay calm, must stay strong.
Somethings in life can't be planned.
Hard to take, out of your hands.
You would change things if you could,
But whatever happens, bad or good.
Deal with things the best you can each day,
Acceptance makes you stronger in every way.
