Have you every truly wondered,
Why life doesn’t always seem fair?
When you’re hoping for a rainbow,
Why you find clouds of pain or despair?

You wonder to yourself,
Why this would be happening to you.
Is this just a bad nightmare?
Really it cannot be true?

You seek answers through the anger,
You feel the emotional burden of pain.
Yet still remaining clueless,
In the long run what you might gain.

Close your eyes and listen
To the words you can hear said.
The message spoken clearly,
It’s not just random voices in the head.

There are lessons to be learned,
Refocus often if you can.
This is destiny and you must grow,
It’s all part of a bigger plan.

For each challenge that seems dreary,
Will eventually open up your eyes.
Then you can truly understand,
There is a Blessing in Disguise.
