    The days roll by
    Even if you're not having fun
    time seems to fly.
    Some days full of laughter
    Some make you wanna cry.
    You merrily say hello.
    You wearily utter goodbye.
    Days turn into weeks
    as you celebrate each holiday
    each annual festival brings new memories
    Dusting off yesteryears decay.
    Weeks turn into months
    Seasons change, another spring.
    New blossoms to admire
    New melodies to sing.
    Is your cup half empty, or half full?
    Can you see the positive through the tears?
    Hard to see clearly when you're sobbing,
    drenched in life's worries and fears.
    Life can be treacherously unfair, unbearable,
    and a mindboggling game.
    But if you don't even try to change the strategy,
    ultimately, who do you have to blame?
    If the grim reaper were to take you today,
    would you be happy with the number of days seized,
    or would you rue every missed opportunity
    knowing your deepest desires weren't appeased.
    You may have 365 more days,
    You may have 1.
    How are you livin your life?

    Something we have to remind ourselves of, especially when things get difficult. Thanks Rich for seeing the truth in it and responding so....

    Sister this is so thought
    and spirit provoking...
    your words evoke
    some serious inner
    reflection...

    Beautifully written! :spinstar:

    Fully and completely on point, sister. You gotta strive every single day, that's for sure.
