  1. This Too, Shall Pass Away
    Poet:  Lanta Wilson Smith


    When some sorrow, like a mighty river,
    Flows through your life with peace-destroying power,
    And dearest things are swept from sight forever,
    Say to your heart each trying hour:
    “This, too, shall pass away.”

    When ceaseless toil has hushed your song of gladness,
    And you have grown almost too tired to pray.
    Let this truth banish from your heart its sadness,
    And ease the burdens of each trying day:
    “This, too, shall pass away.”

    When fortune smiles and full of mirth and pleasure,
    The days are flitting by without a care,
    Lest you should rest with only earthly treasure,
    Let these few words their fullest import bear:
    “This, too, shall pass away.”

    When earnest labor brings you fame and glory,
    And all earth’s noblest ones upon you smile,
    Remember that life’s longest, grandest story
    Fills but a moment in earth’s little while:
    “This, too, shall pass away.”

  3. Nothing Will Ever Last
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    When troubles come, when frustration is here
    One thing is for sure, let's be clear:
    Forever nothing will ever last
    Think of times in your past.

    You may feel like a dark cloud is overhead
    And you may just want to stay in bed.
    But what you are facing will come to pass
    Nothing will ever last.

    So look at the issue and a solution do find
    Don't let the issue play on your mind.
    If you can, take action to solve
    Ask for help, others involve.

    You are not the first person to face
    Troubles and frustrations in this place.
    "This too shall pass", remember this
    The day will come when you find the bliss.

  5. Scatter Sunshine
    Poet:  Lanta Wilson Smith


    In a world where sorrow ever will be known.
    Where are found the needy, and the sad and lone;
    How much joy and comfort we can all bestow
    If we scatter sunshine everywhere we go.

    Slightest actions often meet the sorest needs,
    For the world wants daily little kindly deeds;
    Oh, what care and sorrow we may help remove.
    With our songs and courage, sympathy and love.

    When the days are gloomy, sing some happy song.
    Meet the world's repining with a courage strong;
    Go, with faith undaunted, through the ills of life.
    Scatter smiles and sunshine o'er its toil and strife.



  6. When the days are gloomy, sing some happy song. Meet the world's repining with a courage strong

  7. Facing The Mountains of Life
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    I have faced many mountains in my days
    Some felt impossible to climb I must say.
    But looking back over the years
    I now realize I had nothing to fear.

    Challenges and hardships we all endure
    For one thing in life is for sure:
    We must keep moving forward with hope
    Taking action will help us cope.

    Happy days will come again
    We must stay focused and not complain.
    "This too shall pass", is a saying that's true
    What you do is entirely up to you!

  9. Life's Tests
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest


    If never a sorrow came to us,
    And never a care we knew;
    If every hope were realized,
    And every dream came true;

    If only joy were found on earth,
    And no one ever sighed,
    And never a friend proved false to us,
    And never a loved one died,

    And never a burden bore us down,
    Soul-sick and weary, too.
    We'd yearn for tests to prove our worth
    And tasks for us to do.
