Aging at a rate which, quite frankly, is disgusting.
Will fight you if you aren't kind to yourself

Best fact about me: I befriended an Italian guy who introduced me to Gino D'Acampo. So.

I didn't notice the structure until I was half way down, so I hope it formats properly!

hold on

find joy
oh it's hard
it's so, so hard
but try, you've got to,
because life is so cruel
don't dare give it the satisfaction 
of keeping your knees firmly on the ground.
Get up. Defy it. Shout, laugh, play,
sing to a broken world, soothe
the cruel, all-too-quick Life.
Hold each tiny bit of joy
like a fresh seed in
your warm palm
and watch
as it can

    Love the structure! In addition to the wonderful structure, I also love the meaning that you've conveyed in this piece! :D

    This is a good reminder. This life is quite harsh, so people like us who want to make the world a little brighter are rare. But one could bring about quite a bit of change! A good attitude is a sacred thing, so don't let life get you down for too long.
