Smiling at Adversity

Today I smile at adversity.
The world is wide.
The sky is blue.
Pleasant ideas fill the air around me.

I’ve found many ways to grow.
I’m changing my attitude to God.
Slowly, I am growing in understanding.

Time seems to fold and churn.
There are many opportunities to find hope.
Sometimes it is not enough.
As I grow, I feel more connected to the world.
