#53. When Life Goes Awry…
Everyone you meet comes bearing gifts of light
Everything happens so your path shines bright
Pay attention to the valleys and the mountains
Pay attention to the passions and the pains.
Indeed, some things we are certain about
Truths we know for sure without a doubt
That tomorrow may go either up or down
Life will sometimes swing low or high
Seasons will come and seasons will go
Life speeds up, pauses and then goes so slow.
Some days we love, some we wish away with a sigh
This flux is constant, so never be caught off guard
Drowning in misery, feeling dejected and sad
When life suddenly happens and decides to go awry
You must not get stuck, pondering for days, asking why
Why me? Why now? Why this? Why that? Why not?
For life’s an oscillating pattern, neither here nor there
Some days profound, some we live without a care.
Life will test you, that’s life being life! Sit back; enjoy the game
Play by your rules, choose to evolve, and life’s storms do tame
Have a chuckle and be certain that whatever it dishes up
You are blessed with gifts and resources to rise to the top
Whenever life goes awry, have a good laugh after your cry
Ride the waves with your unique, innate style and sass
In matters of living, you are simply this, a master-class!
