What Life is to Me


Life to me is a journey of untamed obstacles
Not knowing where your journey will lead
Or end

Life is precious and beautiful
Life is a miracle
Life is given to me for a reason
Life is joyous and wonderful to endure each day

We all encounter problems in our lives; we're
Only humans with a lost soul trying to find it

Life is what I make it
Life can be amazing
Life is mine; I won't let anyone take it

I try to see the good things in life, but
Sometimes good things are hard to find; I will
Strive to be the best to my wisdom
Because I am Alisha Ricks and
I believe in myself
All of my accomplishments are mine
And yeah I have three degrees

So how can you degrade me?
Can you?
No, you can't
Because I am destined to my full potential

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
