The Big Let Down

Updated: Jan 30, 2020


Reality is, not everyone keeps his or her promise.


Reality is, people will let you down


Reality is, your most trusted will abandon you when you need them the most.


Reality is, life can, and often does present itself as one big let down.


One disappointment after another


One challenge after another


One frustration after another


Where have all the good people gone I cry out to myself?


It’s easy to lose hope


It’s easy to feel helpless


It’s easy to question the meaning and purpose of it all


It’s easy to lose faith


It’s easy to stop trusting


It’s easy to go on living in fear


To be gripped by bitterness and resentment


Tragedy and despair


Life makes it easy to give up on your self and on others.


But yet there is something that keeps burning deep inside,


A flame that needs to be fanned


Flickers of hope, that won’t let you throw in the towel
