I think I had mixed feelings about this poem, but the older I get the more I realize that you are giving so many opportunities that you let pass you by, and then you think that it’s all over and nothing can be fixed. Sometimes that is true, but while you’re young you have to know that when things get hard you don’t just give up, because it’s the hard things that make you strong… so never forget that Life can be unfair but it’s there, and it’s worth living.
Your Day Is Someday © Taralyn Southam
Simple gifts of joy Are life’s special memories So many forgotten daily treasures Is like someone who won’t read a book The cover is opened and closed without thought As you see every blue sky And cloudless day, Warm rain, on a sunny summer day You walk by as you self-consciously stray And so many joyful memories are forgotten Just like that they go rotten And as the hours go by And life goes on So many wonders to see And you just run by carefree As you listen to life’s chime You stand aside waiting for your time But your time is when you realize Just what you forgot And how you walked into a big ole knot And that as you stand aside Your future flies by Like it will not see you And then you hate how it took so long for you to see That life’s joy was every rotten memory
Life is Finding Yourself a Joy
