Do Not Despair

Even though the clouds of doubt,
Hang over us like a pall,
Tomorrow may be a brighter day,
And there may be no clouds at all.

Sometimes when things seem their worst,
A sliver of hope may appear,
Like a little ray of light,
And things may not be as bad as we fear.

So don't give up no matter what,
Even if it is cloudy and dark today,
We never know what tomorrow will bring,
Maybe our troubles will all go away.

Jesus Cares

Take His hand,
Jesus cares for you and me,
He does understand,
He will set you free.

He died for you,
Do not be afraid,
His peace He gives you,
The price has been paid.

He will never forsake you,
Your troubles He will bear,
He will never leave you,
He will always love and care.

Honoring and Respecting Yourself

You have to accept the fact that not everybody is going to like you. No matter who you are or what you do, somebody is going to be critical of you, and say disparaging things about you. The important thing is that you at least try to like yourself, and no matter what people say or do still respect and honor yourself.

After all you can't really respect and honor other people if you don't respect and honor yourself. You have to come to terms with the fact that you are not perfect and that you are going to make mistakes, but that does not mean that you are inferior or a badperson. Everybody makes mistakes, and no one is perfect.

The most important thing is not to give up and to keep striving to reach your goals no matter what. Other people's opinion of you doesn't really matter, and cannot prevent you from succeeding. Only your own opinion of yourself matters, and can help or hinder you from reaching for the stars.

Keep Reaching For The Stars

Keep reaching for the stars.
Never give up your quest.
The person who strives for hours,
Is more likely to succeed than the rest.

The people who keep their dreams,
In spite of trial and woe,
Are more successful it seems,
Than those who give up and let go.

If you hang on for one more try,
That might all the difference make,
So never let yourself say die,
But always one more step take.
