Poems about Life Struggles

Life is the sum of experiences that we encounter as we go through life. Day to day struggles and triumphs are experienced by all of the world's creatures. As human beings, when we encounter a challenge, we have freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down a different road. We will never come to exactly the same crossroads. Every decision the we make has significance. The tiniest choice that we make reverberates throughout the entire universe.

Young, carefree, innocent
You sing, laugh and dance
Taking in all Gods' glory
At every single chance.

Grown up
You ignore the wonders

That you end our …
