Life


Life, Life, Life, Life,
Life, is what you make of it, some will say,
Life, is up and down, a roller coaster others will say,
Life, is what you see as your daily activities,
Life, is the image that you see in the mirror,
Life, moves fast just like the roller coaster,

Life, is various seasons, and various stages of your being,
Life, it could be good, it could be bad, it could be in between,
Life, is that, that attracts friends like bees' attraction to honey, only when life is good,
Life, is that, that repels friends like the same poles of magnets, when the going is rough,

Life, never all smooth, never all rough, but it keeps going,
Life, sometimes short, sometimes long, but never unending,
Life, tells tales in parables, and only the wise can understand the parables of life,
Life, not waiting for you to catch your breath or fully take stock,
Life, is here today but gone tomorrow,
Life, is accepting whatever it brings to you, for you may not always have control over everything as there is what is called destiny.
