    there are a few seasons in life where
    spring brings death
    like when the funeral of your childhood
    and life as you know it
    has been scheduled
    and you can't change the appointment
    is it the uncertainty of the unknown or
    the sting of regret
    OK
    maybe both
    and it's a stuck spot because
    only time will dilute it
    I used to think
    maybe if I hadn't been sick
    I would have placed first
    instead of eighth
    but I was sick
    I was eighth
    and now I am
    uniquely me
    maybe life is learning the art of
    accepting all its little deaths
    or perhaps it's the increasing beauty as you
    ascend the valley of perspective
    but whatever the case
    life is perfect in its imperfections
    it seems sloppy and random at the time
    but looking back later, it all makes sense
    zig zag maze haze
    rearview mirror clear
    fear, excitement
    sadness, joy
    death, birth
    spring, summer
    walk, run
    into the light

    Thought provoking scribe, our lives are like jigsaw puzzles, you don't know why the pieces all fit at the time, but they do. Write some more please.

    and I feel you completely...

    In learning to die
    .......................We Learn to Live


    Sister...your deep... :wink:
    but I suppose our minds are alike
    because I'm totally wrapped up in
    the concept! Peace & Love

    mzblk, that is so nice of you to say.....I have been gone for a minute but think I am back now. Thanks, sis. Much love.

    Khasm - yeah, you know, eighth wasn't so bad cause I still got a PR in the race. :cool: You always know the right things to say, brothah. Thanks so much.

    $$RICH$$, encouragement from you is like wind beneath the wings. Thanks, sweetie.

    Much love to you, Blue, for your kindness and continual support. Thanks, sis.

    Aw watz, thank you! For your last comment and for getting what I'm sayin. You're supa.

    "In learning to die we learn to live".....sister Angelicsage, I knew you'd get what I was talkin about, if no one else did. Thank you for meeting your mind with mine. I respect you so much. :heart:

    Thanks, fam.
