Chapters Being Written

The pages are turning, one page at a time. A story is written line upon line. Echoes from the past pushing me forward even still What is ahead I do not know, but something urges me to go Life has its ups and downs and we must experience them all With expectation, with some reservation I feel the call. Not afraid to move ahead, standing still is not my way So moving forward looking for to a better day. Pausing only for a moment to look where I have been Then continuing on to the next journeys end Life is a story being told. a book full of chapters Some made of pure gold, We keep all the chapters, some good and some bad For there are lessons to be learned from all that was had. A mixture of tender moments, sadness, laughter and despair, teaching us who we are, showing us how to care. There is a guiding hand in all of this taking us to each level, each chapter of our lives, lifting us up when we fall, pulling us up gently, speaking into our hearts a new song, a new hope a new direction.

The essence of this poem is wonderful. The impermanence of life is troubling to some. However, some must learn how to flow with the wind and the songs between ifs flow. Great job! ~Joseph
