Life doesn’t happen with a musical score
accompanying our most dramatic scenes;
Beauty in a person is so much more
than what adorns the covers of our magazines.
Love and hate walks a very thin line,
it isn’t always so black and white;
When things get tough you can’t shout out, “time”;
What is wrong for you – for me, might be right.
Religions have caused more harm than good;
Politically correct can be awfully wrong;
People don’t always do the things that they should,
Being meek doesn’t mean you’re not strong.
You exist alone in this crowded world;
Solitary can be a crowded place;
Trust in yourself is a thing you must build,
before challenges can be successfully faced.
The script for tomorrow has yet to be written,
improvisation is our daily routine;
Take a bite out of life before you are bitten;
Don’t leave it before you are seen.
