" Lessons Of Life....................."

Lessons of Life.............
(January 20, 2008 - 1:05 AM)

I feared being alone, until
I learned to like myself.

I feared failure, until
I realized that I only fail when I don't try.

I feared success, until
I realized that I had to try
in order to be happy with myself.

I feared people's opinions, until
I learned that people would have opinions
about me anyway.

I feared rejection, until
I learned to have faith in myself.

I feared pain, until
I learned that it's necessary for growth.

I feared the truth,until
I saw the ugliness in lies.

I feared life, until
I experienced its beauty.

I feared death, until
I realized that it's not an end, but a beginning.

I feared my destiny, until
I realized that I had the power to change
my life.

I feared hate, until
I saw that it was nothing more than ignorance.

I feared love, until
it touched my heart,
making the darkness fade into endless sunny days.

I feared ridicule, until
I learned how to laugh at myself.

I feared growing old, until
I realized that I gained wisdom every day.

I feared the future, until
I realized that life just kept getting better.

I feared the past, until
I realized that it could no longer hurt me.

I feared the dark, until
I saw the beauty of the starlight.

I feared the light, until
I learned that the truth would give me strength.

I feared change, until
I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly
had to undergo a metamorphosis
before it could fly.

    I've been having tough times lately. You have no idea what this poem did for me. It really talked to me.

    JazakAllah Khair sis. I can't say that enough.
