Life has a mysterious way,
and everyone has a role they must play.
It is funny how we all can change,
how things come along- our life to rearrange.
With each triumph we can grow strong,
but each defeat makes the road so much more long.
We may believe it is all a game,
until we find out pain is its name.
The challenges we face,
are strategically in place.
The result is one of two things,
to crash and burn or soar high with new wings.
Some get lost in a dungeon of fears,
and slowly they drown in a pool of their own tears.
There is always hope.
that someone will throw a rope.
You grab on,
and they help you face a new dawn.
So that someday we will all find our wings,
and cherish the happiness that it brings.
We will learn to treasure our triumphs each passing day,
and roll with this life and its mysterious way.
