Life - Poem by Mary Rodriguez

Life is full of choices we make
A balance between give and take
Many defining moments shape the person we become
It has nothing to do with where we come from
Trials and triumphs add character to our life
Focusing on the negative will lead to a life of strife
Random acts of kindness help people along the way
We never know what people are going through as they go about their day
There's no sense in living in the past
Rarely do good things ever last
Sometimes you just have to know where to begin
To gather the strength that lives within
Each day brings about gladness and sorrow
In times of sadness remember there is always tomorrow
I hold tight to the thought of you here with me
In your arms I feel safe as can be
Sometimes feeling as if no one cares
Walking silently past empty stares
We all get filled with fears and doubts
Have patience and trust good things will come about
Follow lifes lessons they won't steer you wrong
What we do with our life can be like a beautiful song.

    Great poem, when you mentioned life is about give and take, lack of compromise is the cause of many downfalls. (Report) Reply
