Joy is Discovered

April 3, 2011


It has been my experience

And I’ve heard thousands whisper

Their deepest desperate hurts —

Light appears in the dark


I met love at the bottom

This is a strange paradox

Going down led me upward

A treasure found


Life’s pain is like a furnace

The soul is refined by fire

Hope is born in the process

Joy is discovered


Why do some understand

And other’s don’t seem to see

I think I have a clue


Please consider this

Choose to see that you are great

A joy to behold
