Could Life Have Smiled - Poem by Corrari Wabbit

Could life have smiled?
Look, its looking at me!
I'm waving back, I'm down here. Can life see me?
I have run after it before, but it has always been too much, too hard
to follow, or it disappears, just too far to touch. But look, I think
I've got it! Look it was just right there, in my own very world;
I didnt think it would be. I know lifes not always fair.
Got it? Good, now what to do? There is no book, no one to help me,
no instructions, no guide to show me through.
Ill just go on and start it. Look at whats happening; Wow!
But hang on, whats this, whats happening now?
I'm running and its running faster. I have to get it back! I have
much of its tricks that I have yet to master!
Perhaps if I slow, it will slow to. Wait, its working! I am seeing
myself! Myself, my friends, and making me feel more than just a who.

Oh good, its all here. Ill gather it around, my direction, my heart,
my mind; and look what else ive found; i've found a way, a light
through my soul, that when iluminated becomes bright, becomes alive,
becomes whole.
I gives me a path, a road to somewhere.
Where do you know?
Oh, I get it. dont try to hardand you will begin to roll.
Im off now. Ive got to get in early!
I have much to learn and a person to evolve and the exiting prospect
that life is a unwritten, precious, fulfilling and endless journey.
