Comparison ~ a wee ditty



When I think of trials I have withstood

And the many dues I’ve paid

I know I’ve grown in humanhood

And no longer am afraid

To know what I once misunderstood

And struggled to evade:

Hard times have taught me that I could

Overcome any barricade.


There were times I felt swallowed by despair

And overcome with hopelessness

I felt my burden was too much to bear

My sea of anguish, bottomless

Yet time did heal and I now can compare

Having felt the depths of distress

Now I am completely aware

Of the true worth of joyousness.
