Brave

i chose not to be discouraged

and for once

i made a decision i didn’t regret

i chose not to be defeated

and i was’t

i won fair and square

and never once was i beaten again

I kept hoping

I kept believing

in happy endings that everyone

thought was overrated

Happy endings happen everyday

the happiness ends when the faith

goes away

Happy endings are not what i

believe in

friends and family and miracles

that come my way

these are what saved my day

  1. A fantastic poem and take on today’s prompt Mich. I love the lines ” the happiness ends when the faith goes away.” They should use that as a mantra on self awareness courses.
