Hard Times Poems

Poems about Hardship

Part of the reality of life is hardship. That is not a negative statement. It is simply a statement of fact. Every day brings new challenges. Living with the expectation that life will be difficult makes hard times easier to deal with. When a family encounters hard times they will need to join together and face the challenge as a team. They will need to be sensitive to the needs of individual family members each of whom will face unique difficulties. Life is not easy, but having a support system makes life that much easier.

Poem About The Hard Times In Life, Holding On

The three of us hold on tight,
Never ever let go and we'll be alright,
We've held on this long,
And we've put up a fight,
So don't let go now,
And we'll make it through another night.
