(First published 1/14 ~ Revised)
Whenever life has the last laugh, and it is on you,
Drops you in the drink, snaps a lace on your shoe,
Challenging and unfair, you may think, often true,
But, more often, the problem is all because of you.
“Wait,” you say, “How can this be blamed on me?”
“I did everything I intended to do, don’t you see?”
Didn’t drop my keys on purpose, not late for tea.;
Creation is difficult; I should be passed for free.”
Such arguments should not be used, as I have done,
Or say we are attempting, trying, thar it’s all in fun.
Must own our art, music, craft, life in noonday sun.
Why choose any other way? Life offers no refund.
Reflect, dig deep, find what drives you at the core.
You have plenty of time, while we shelter indoors.
You know you’ve found it, when your spirit soars
Fake it until you make it; I say, take it, it’s yours
Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
