Cheers

Cheers to the pain
that haunted our past.

Cheers to those who
put our hearts in a cast.

Cheers to the tears
that fell down our faces.

Cheers to our mistakes,
that led us in different places.

Were it not for them, we wouldn’t be here.
So cheers to you, for facing your fear.

Cheers to you, for staying strong,
and may these words help you carry on.

    Words of wisdom for life. I may read this out loud and toast with a Guinness. If anyone else is there, I’ll give you all credit. All right with you?
