Bigger Picture


When I was a child
I was full of doubt,
Didn't have a clue 
What the world was about,
Now that I'm older 
I'm a little more wise,
I've upped my game
And opened my eyes,
Now I can see 
What lies ahead,
I've focused my mind 
And my wings I've spread,
I've broadened my horizons
And taken chances,
To better my life 
And my circumstances,
Along the way
There's one or two things I've learned,
Opportunities rarely land on your lap,
They have to be earned!
So when life deals you a bad hand,
Don't take it personally,
Try to understand,
It may not be what you had planned,
often There's a bigger picture,
In time you'll see your life grow richer.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
