(picture not my own, credit where due)
Never in my life
would I have believed that I would get a
a new lease on life.
Almost 2 years ago I had
the shock of my life
and life, as I knew it
came to a screeching halt.
In a sense, since it has been
life in the fast lane
decisions, changes, obligations, responsibilities and many adjustments.
I was forced to take life into my own hands.
The facts of life are not about the birds and the bees,
but that there are always circumstances beyond your control
which obliterate that proverbial Life is a bowl of cherries
into a holding on for dear life.
The future is so uncertain that
being a bit past the prime of my life
some days it frightens the life out of me
when I lie awake at night thinking about
the best things in life are free
which doesn’t quite ring true
food, shelter and the bills have to be paid
cause life in the raw
is not do able with children.
Life is short and time is swift
and even difficulties have a shelf life
So, while there is life – there is hope!
