If you are a bit discouraged
and at first you dont succeed,
aim your sights a little higher
then draw a firmer bead.

Guide your course with greater wisdom-
don't take a backward glance,
surely fear will overcome you
if you give it half a chance.

Each day is a fresh beginning
arise and begin with it anew,
yesterdays trials are soon forgotten
just passing quickly in review.

Life's troubles should not worry
so put them in thier place,
not hard to solve your problems
if you meet them face to face.

Amen to that, Echo

I look forward to tomorrow, while looking back on the past. But today is the day I am living. And I expect it to be a great day!

Such true words and so well said Echo. Somehow when you bury problems they grow like weeds.

This is a good philosophy, but unfortunately it is hard to do so when you are facing the trials of the moment - and pain only makes you appreciate your joys more I think.
Like the poem - well crafted!
