Another challenge poem :o). Words "a strength in" were to be used in a poem. This is about labels/boxes we place people in. Maybe we should think twice before we place someone in one, or on someone.

Heart In A Box 


When someone hates you, 

for no reason at all, 

don't give up hope. 

Find a strength in 

knowing you're a good person. 


When you hate someone, 

for reasons only you understand, 

don't give into rage. 

Find a strength in 

knowing God loves stupid people too. 


When someone loves you, 

but you can't love them, 

don't get frustrated. 

Find a strength in 

knowing you're lovable. 


When you love someone, 

but they can't love you in return, 

don't get discouraged. 

Find a strength in 

knowing it's their loss. 


We're all blinded by our emotions. 

The trick isn't giving into them. 

It's conquering the obstacles 

which try to place us in 

little boxes.
