What is this eternal concept of life?
Regardless of objectives, constant growth.
Replete with happiness and fraught with strife,
Acceptance, rejection, embracing both.
Inhale, exhale, challenging and with ease,
Myriad hardships through which to persist.
Stuck in the rain and waltzing on the breeze,
Absent passion, opportunities missed.
Each day brings with it a chance to evolve,
Defeating mountains by conquering fears.
Where dreams can come true and nightmares dissolve,
Succumbing to failure, embracing cheers.
Elation, depression, tears, and laughter,
A happily—or not—ever after.
“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.” ~ William Barclay
