You Faced The Challenges

Poem by Catherine Pulsifer, 2004

I look at the challenges you face
And your determination in making your case
Others would have given up
But you kept going not letting up.

Of you, we are so very proud
We tell everyone out loud
We all need to aspire
To share the story of those we admire.

So you are proof that if you believe
With God's help, you can achieve.
We look forward to the next goal you need
We know you will face it and exceed.


As You Go Through Life
Poet: Unknown

As you go through life
It is not always going to be easy.

You're going to have somebody say
Some things that are going to cut you to the core.

The sun will not always shine;
The flowers won't always bloom.

But I have found this out:
The storms that I go through are for my good,
Because no one appreciates the sunshine until
He has gone through the storm.


See It Through
Poet: Edgar A. Guest

When you’re up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!

Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don’t let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!

Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you’re beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don’t give up, whate’er you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!
