No one escapes the trouble

We all “get it in the neck”

The big question to be asked

Is: “What do I do?”

 

Victor Frankl speaks to this

From a concentration camp

Everyone taken from him

During World War II

 

His family was destroyed

His wife and children killed

He chose not to be bitter

Surrender his mind

 

Hatred would have destroyed him

A choice he could have made

In searching he found a way

And he was set free 

 

Man’s Search for Meaning

The book he wrote in Response

Tells the story well

 

We all have a choice

Each one is responsible

It’s my decision

What I will do with my life

I am larger than my pain
