Not everyone will like you,
Or even think you’re great.
The world will not reward you
For simply cleaning your plate.
You won’t agree with all of them,
So they won’t have your back.
And when you sometimes fall for them,
They may not love you back.
I hate to burst your bubble
At this juncture of your life:
In the world you will have trouble,
Not to mention pain and strife.
Would I tell you this and leave you
With no shred of hope or cheer?
I’ll not forsake or leave you.
You know I’m always here.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
—— Jesus (John 16:33)
