Strategy of Life

The Strategy of Life is the Unthinkable. If imagined, the Impossible may become Possible. The Possible will become Reality, and the Reality will become the Unthinkable Strategy of Life.

About this poem

I wrote this after losing a friend early in my life. It helped me cope with the loss. Shortly after his death, I lost another friend. After that friend, I lost another one. In the midst of losing those 3 friends, I lost my grandmother. Shortly after the loss of my grandmother, I lost a 4th friend. 2007 into mid 2008 was incredibly rough on me. I will never forget those who made me who I am today. I once published this poem, quote, motivational tool, on here back in 2007. Unfortunately, I can't find it. So I'm reposting, far too late.
