Seeing Rejection

Supposedly my entry for another blogging site but I opted to post the poem here. 


Could this be another closed door? 
I’ve been through this many times before. 
Again here I am wondering ‘what went wrong?’ 
Then I whispered ‘ Stay calm… be strong!’ 

Despite the fact that you’re doing your best, 
You’ll be taken to a difficult test. 
And no matter how good you try 
You would end up with a deep sigh. 

Alas!, life is a sea of ups and downs 
Keep afloat or you might get drowned. 
Some people would turn against you. 
Find peace within, this shall pass too. 

Come what may life must go on. 
See rejection as a stepping stone. 
Move ahead and look at the brighter side. 
Keep going.... Let God be our guide.

I like the second stanza of ur poem "Despite the fact that you’re doing your best,
You’ll be taken to a difficult test.
And no matter how good you try
You would end up with a deep sigh." <- True!!
