They Say

When one chance goes away, they say
Just waiting is one more

And when a door slams shut, they say
You open another door

When something is so bad, they say
There’s always good inside

You can always find some good, they say
no matter how hard you’ve tried

When you feel your effort was useless, they say
That’s knowledge that you gained

And it was all for the better, they say
When you feel you tried in vain

When you feel it wasn’t worth it, they say
There was something that you earned

When you feel that all is lost, they say
There was really a lesson learned
