Things one knows, but still questions.

I wonder sometimes, this day will I make it through?
Will I have the strength to finish the tasks at hand?
Challenges the universe has given me, I need to do.
Why life can be so complicated, I do not understand?

My mother always told me, take each day as it comes.
Some will be difficult, some easy, but never too hard.
The more you deal with living, the easier it becomes.
Take care of the important things, the rest disregard.

The universe will never present a chore you can't complete.
Until you have the strength to handle it, never turn or shun.
Life has ups and downs, karma always keeps a balance sheet.
Attack each task, one at a time, they can never be outrun.

I hear Mom's words like she was still sitting here beside me.
Though there are days I would rather curl into a ball and hide.
From time to time jobs seem overwhelming, I just want to flee.
Heart and mind skirmishing within, making it tough to decide.

Even if I trip and stumble, I seem to make it through another day.
Friends and family keeping me upright, walking by my side.
Laying my head down again tonight, dreams will be at play.
Before sleep comes I ask, am I going crazy, should I run and hide?
