But, That's Life
All the days that I have lived
have opened up my eyes.
I do not resent any of them
nor do I victimize
anything or anyone I came upon
that opined differently.
For they are whom they're supposed to be
and I am strictly me.
I have laughed and I have wept
as all we humans do.
When it's time to leave this earth
whatever I've been through
were the lessons that I needed
to breathe life into my soul.
And all of my accolades and failures
have probably taken their toll.
But that my friends, is life.
