Who has not felt ripples
At some point or another
Life comes a full circle
With its curves of ups and downs.
In the course of living
There will be many ups
Where the ego is boosted
And the spirit seems to soar.
And in the same breath
There will be many downs
Of grief despair and loss
Sometimes beyond compare.
As life continues its path
Between the nowhere and somewhere
Between the pain and pleasures
Know there is an art to living.
Call it the wisdom of moderation
To stay clear of tilting in the extremes
Of emotions that manifest
In life and living.
Sense it all, both pain and pleasures
For what is life after all
A little laughter to fill your hearts
And let your tears flow if they must
Just don’t dwell in it for too long…
Move on, learning to flow with life
You are no mountain to stand unmoved
Or stagnant pond collecting debris
You are filled with the wonder of life.
Just like trees, shed your pain
Like dried autumn leaves
Let go of your worries
Allow yourself to flourish again.
You are meant to flow
Like a stream in the river of time
You are meant to grow
And evolve along the way.
Choose to care and share
With your fellow travellers
For each life matters, somehow somewhere
To one and all, along the way!
