    Everyday trying to forget
    Each day it grows heavier in mind
    My misery meets my loneliness
    And their now strengths have been combined
    Tribulations sprouting like wild plants
    Feeling deeply entangled in the vines
    I drew the straight path I hoped to go
    Yet, life has taken me outside the lines
    But, I’m learning life keeps on going
    Like he’s walking hand in hand with time
    Learning sometimes he feeds you sweet grapes
    Sometimes he will feed you with sour limes
    Learning the Lord may provide answers
    If you keep faithfully praying for signs
    Learning catching up can be very hard
    If you have fallen too far behind

    Yes, despite how daunting my struggle
    The planet’s motions do not change pace
    Despite how big some impacts may be
    On the dreams I am trying to chase
    I must keep actively seeking answers
    For each of the challenges I face
    Every moment I spend distressing
    Becomes a minute spent in waste
    All thoughts of anger and vengeance
    Have to be removed or misplaced
    Try to learn from these bad experiences
    For they cannot be changed or erased
    Try to keep my mind on positive things
    Trusting in the Lord and his grace
    Even when you lose some priceless things…
    And they are impossible to replace

    Through the sadness and joy, through wins and losses, life keeps moving on with us or without us, so we must forge ahead. I appreciated the positive vibe and crisp composition.

    Some may believe certain things are lost, but they are just stored away 4 a later day. All will be replaced if U only believe.

    Very nice piece.

    Bless.

    My inspiration for this piece is the lessons I'm learning from the loss my life has recently suffered. I'm realizing that if I don't continue living my life, pursuing my dreams, I lose the person I've grown to be. Thanks for the feedback, and the love.
