Life

Oh life what can I say about your charm
you play both bad villain and good angel
Your bad villain takes my puppy away
you make me cry day and night
a little heart that breaks
so sad that I did not want to play
Life can be happy with a good angel
making me happy and laugh with a smile
like the time you let me play in the snow
fun~cold with hot chocolate in tow
Life changes as we grow
from child to adulthood
we learn about self
we learn about life
bad and good are mixed in
just like a fine recipe

Oh, this is so beautiful and inspiring, Paula. Your exquisite imagery moves my heart’s imagination so very deeply, for I have been before where your vivid expression has brought me again. Simply splendid, my dear friend. Indeed, life is like a recipe all mixed together. Best wishes for a win and warmest wishes for you.. ~Susan

I am echo, as I endorse Harry's comment on last lines. Like the best store-bought confectionaries, there are good and bad "things" in it. And we "get killed" so slowly, we actually pay others to do that "natural" crime ... one human at a time. Ooops, there are angels of course. Pos+
