Everyone seize the day seize the moment
it's your life manage it like you own it
life hands you stuff and you can't hand it back
it seems more then often life hands out garbage
it's always  up to you how you react
your dieing of cancer in bed on your back
people surround you giving love and support
you can focus on cancer lie there and bitch
you can focus on the love and know you are rich
or you might have Parkinson's Disease
and the pain at times drives you to your knees
pray in your own words and way for comfort
or lay there in pain and lament your disease
when life attacks it's up to you how you react
does it overwhelm you or do you attack
or with a peaceful feeling you choose
how you will react

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
