    Stepping back, outside myself,
    letting life continue to pass by,
    I’ve been amazed with some of my trying days
    been inclined to ask myself why,
    seen good times drip with their rich sweet nectar,
    seen the bad, as they congested their thickness upon my chest,
    some nights, when tears were as common as darkness,
    I’d manipulate my mind into a slideshow of scenarios,
    but what ifs get old after awhile,
    hardships and trials,
    joys and great successes,
    life’s randomness scribed in patterns within me
    I’ve seen clear blue skies,
    and dark shades of gray,
    soared high and had hills to climb,
    but through each incident
    I just have to smile,
    glad, that at least for an additional day,
    I have made it over

    outside of oneself sometimes things are clearly seen so are blessings ...... to remember is sometimes a turbulent ride ...thank God for wisdom that allows us to identify our conditions and not them identify us. in the darkness and by the rivers of our tears there is a peace, a silence that speaks bold and loving to us and speaks of the sweetest of victories that we over come in a day .... this is the day the Lord has made.....
