I am not a good one to ask. A couple of months ago, I wrote a post answering the question - "What defines a man?".
What defines a man?
I look at my son and I wonder ... what are the qualities of a man who is able to have a wild bird alight on his hand? I have never experienced this. Where did he learn the qualities to be able to be so trusted by a wild animal? What messages will he be able to pass on to future generations? Would a man be someone who inspires pride and trust in others?
As you can see, I never did get around to answering the question. The message that I hope my descendants would read is that I am a father, who is proud of his son.
"WHEN LIFE GETS HARD" is a challenging topic to write about. When I see the picture of your friend I can't help but want to know more about her (with regard to the topic).
How would you describe her eyes - soulful, sad, overwhelmed?
There is a poem "Do not go gentle into that good night" that is a message about dying but could be a metaphor for any adversity.
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
When life gets hard do not accept it. Fight to overcome adversity. |Rage, rage against the dying of the light.|
