This world is not going to bring me down-
Hurt me – I will recover
Reject me – I will keep trying
Block me from being all that I can be – I will go around you.
If I make a mistake – I will learn
If I lose a job – I will find another
If I fail – I will figure it out and succeed.
If I harm you in anyway –
I will apologize, learn from it, and grow into a better person
The world is confusing –
Filled with (and often run by) –
Greedy, power hungry, corrupt, and violent people
With few morals, ethics, conscience or
Concern for others – and it never seems to change.
But I refuse to be overcome by it!
I love and I am loved by –
My true friends
I love nature, beauty, peace
and people of goodwill from all faiths and all countries.
I respect myself
and I respect you.
These strengths are my security.
This world is not going to bring me down –
But I know it’s going to try.
