For the Rhythm and Rhyme Contest, a trolaan.
** Image ID #1684602 Unavailable **
Often life becomes perilous
Obfuscated, we stop, falter.
Overloaded with stress, nervous;
Overwhelmed, tense in our danger.

Fear grapples us with all its might.
Fumbling, we don't know what to do.
Fortitude is what we need right.
Forbearance can be our rescue.


Easily we can overcome
Every obstacle in our life,
Each thorn in our path if become
Equable even in our strife.

As we face each hurdle with ease
And thread our way through the risky
Acclivities, worrying we cease.
At last our spirits turn lively.
