Life Lessons – A Poem

25 Jan

The what ifs

The how comes

Too many to count

Life goes on

One day becomes another

Earth revolves again

And then again

Unending, unmoved

We stand in a crater

Emotion, health, financial

Wondering what happened

How we came here

What went wrong

How does it get fixed

Rarely is it a simple answer

A snap of the fingers

A twitch of the nose

A rub of the lamp

Self-examination

Hard work and diet

Planning and working

Maybe we can go back to normal

Maybe there’s a new normal

Perhaps we can be better than ever

But walk on we must

For standing still

Drinking tears of defeat and bitterness

Merely hardens our hearts

Darkens our souls

We must pick ourselves up

Accepting help and advice

Reach for that new day

Letting yesterday stay in the past

Release the hurt

Remember the lesson

Be Stronger for your past

And always ready for more life

*            *            *

It hurts to fall down. But some of the best discoveries were only found through accidents or pain.

Stay strong my friends, and learn through life’s lessons.  😉
