View of life.
Life can be like a talent show;
the wealth of talent makes you grow.
To win is nice yet losses come;
loss is the thing tough will comes from.

A jigsaw puzzle life can be;
those scattered pieces make you see.
Then when you form the pieces right
you sense effect and feel delight.

Rejection letter--often life;
turn downs add up to strain and strife.
Yet even though it may feel wrong,
you can use them to make you strong,

In short, then, life can be a bane
with chilly winds and lots of rain.
No killing comes from loss or need;
the murder would be to concede.
