Pain Of Today, Strength Of Tomorrow

Clouds form. There are tears to shed. Life pushes forward. You lie on your face; tired, confused. There is an unexpected turn.

Hidden valley's lie below; the view makes you dizzy. Unclimbed mountains stare you down from above, it's not what you wanted.

There is gold in the valley and breathtaking views from the mountain tops. But this is not what you see; there is no gold to be found, the climb seems unbearable.

You are told there is a light, a reward, and that it's worth the pain. But right now, today; it hurts.

Cry my friend. Don't ignore the pain. Today will be gone soon, and tomorrow you will be stronger.
