Do not let the disappointment of the moment
Linger too long with your soul, my friend …
Commit to discarding its woeful garment and
The propensity to overwhelm the spirit with despair.
Rather, seek within and around you that which uplifts
And in earnest measure find joy, and maximize to your
Own advantage, the treasures of the unique gift, of each day.
Although, natural inclination is to somewhat
Ponder on such occurrences for extended time…
Dwell not, on the shortcomings of the past,
Rather, let them instruct you for the future
Particularly towards new strategies and beginnings.
For what good is it to stagnate in irreversible tides,
When otherwise challenging circumstances, inherently,
May expand discernment to alternative options, and
Pave the pathway to brighter and greater horizons.
Stride forward not backward
Disappointment, yet may transform into a motivator.
If it is viewed beyond what it ordinarily portends,
And is earnestly assessed for the accompanying lessons,
Thus yielding much introspection leading to circumspection.
Resulting in determination to advance forward, navigate renewed
To embrace new horizons, fortified and much wiser still.
