There’s many things that I admire,
but mostly things that can inspire.
When people are put to the test,
I like to see them do their best.
I like to see them struggle on,
after most of hope has gone.
For they deserve respect and awe,
when they do not then withdraw.
I like to witness people fight
with all their strength and all their might.
They don’t let problems get them down,
and they rarely fret or frown.
I’ve always had a fascination
and a great appreciation,
for those folk who don’t give up,
even with an empty cup.
I cannot help have high regard,
for people who have lives so hard
that others tend to shy away
and make it clear that they won’t stay.
When things get hard as they can be
for me it creates empathy.
I’ll put myself into their shoes
and fight with them to win or lose.
People have my approbation
coping with exacerbation.
For when things can’t get any worse
that pushes me to write some verse.
So I will give my utmost praise
to those who get through life’s malaise,
and come out on the other side
with some dignity and pride.
