take the bull by horn

don’t give up and complain
when life throws thorns on road
avoid them, walk on
smile to ease your load.

That’s what she learned from life
Complaining is just useless
If you can’t tackle life
Shedding tears is senseless.

Laugh at the charging bull
Grab it by horn or duck
Let it dance around you
Wait for your stroke of luck.

And when the ship shows up
Don’t wait for the bigger one
Climb the ship and sail forth
Or you may lose all the fun!

Rules of Ballad: I will request you to explore the rules of ballad yourself. I read quite a handful of them and thought that it’s quite a liberal style of poem with varying size of stanzas and other things. Go ahead and explore them. I have zeroed on two things- telling a story, using four line stanzas with rhyming 2nd+4th line.
