How many setbacks
Has life tossed your way?
Have they made you stronger
And more confident today?
What kinds of setbacks
Add quality to your life?
Do you gain ultimate happiness
By walking through major strife?
What constitutes a setback?
Loss of a job, death of a spouse,
Disappointment at a missed goal?
Losing a bid on your dream house?
How do setbacks make us stronger?
COVID-19 is a world-wide setback.
Will this pandemic make us better?
Will it teach us the compassion we lack?
We are one…
We all have setbacks…
We need to reach out to one another…
We need to help one another – pull each other up –
And be sure this setback teaches us the lessons we need to learn.
What are they?
See ya tomorrow.
