Every now and again

Something disrupts and invades your family den

Some will stand strong and defend

Some will weaken and only pretend

Those that stand their ground for their family

Are the ones who truly protect from the enemy


In looking at some as protective parents

The question of who won becomes quite apparent

It’s not about who won

It’s the negative influence that is finally gone


Negativity is contagious

Some can beat it by being courageous

Others succumb to it and become dangerous

Protecting a positive environment

Is creating a life of peace and contentment!


-D.L. Carroll

All to get along with each other is the thing and creating peace and contentment does take some work. Nice poem though!!

The only way to survive in this world and mover forward is to focus on the postitive no matter what. We all get down and discouraged but the survivors are the ones who can shake it off quickly and get back to living.
