For fun

Today is a friend from my writers group’s birthday, so here is a little gift. I am certainly a novice at poetry, but I believe in this case, she’ll accept that it is the thought that counts. 😉

Hopefully, you will as well. 🙂

By CJ Schwartz

Pain will not crush and confine me
I will let it transform me
Fear will not hold or hinder me
I will let it drive me

Forward is where I am headed
I will begin anew
Upward reaching, growing
I will journey on

Happiness will not a stranger be
I will let it accompany me
Peace will not allude me
I will let it surround me
