Lifes Curve Balls Poem by Patricia Grantham

Lifes Curve Balls

Rating: 4.9

As we go through this journey called life
We're thrown many curve balls along the way
We can either catch them or let them fall
You may run fast, slow or even not at all

The choice is up to you whatever it may be
Caught unawares you may not see them coming
Other times you're ready to face the challenges
The race is not always won by the fastest
But for the ones who holds out the longest

You may lose your footing but get back on track
Keep on moving ahead and try to stay focused
Soon you will find yourself making great strides
Then you look back to see how far you have come

You then took a deep breath and let out a big sigh
Yes life may have thrown you some fast curve balls
It is how you run with life and keep up with its pace
If you don't life will soon pass you along the way

So whatever your curve balls are in life stay at
the bat and keep on swinging

You can either:

Miss it or hit it
Tap it or dodge it

Just keep on playing!

Even mighty Casey did strike out We all have to bat again. A great comparison to life and baseball. I thought about it and thoroughly enjoyed it

Once again, I love your positive outlook about life, and here you compared it to a baseball game! Very creatively, I might add! and life does throw us some curve balls at times, and at times we score a home run, but as long as we just keep on trying, we score! I enjoyed this poem very much. Thank you!

While at crease U must play, hit or miss; tap it or dodge it, is all part of play. And so is life. Words of wisdom indeed.
