People change as circumstances change

 

 

 

Today I wander down one road, a road filled with natures’ splendor

Colors abound as my eyes traverse the valley below gazing at the

Meandering ripples skirting the rocks in the stream

 

Flowers show their glory as they dance on raindrops gleaming in the

Morning mist, just before the sun comes up to dry their sleepy eyes

Waving to their neighbors as they open up their arms to its warmth

 

As the day wears on and night slowly steals in to darken the skies

The moon glow gently slips over the valley and closes sleepy eyes

The rustle of the wind lulling all to sleep with her soft sighs

 

Day breaks with thunder roaring in its anger over the land

Darkened clouds overcast the valley flowers in quickened speed

Winds whipping all of nature into a frenzy of deceit

 

Morning mist turns into dense fog and slips its cloak over all

the valley below. While flowers weep softly in sorrow their

stems bent to ward off the anger of the threatening storm

 

So it is with life as we travel through each new day

Changing as we learn its lessons along the way

For there is no limit to life’s happiness and pain

Only the knowledge that is to be gained

 

Today I walk on rainbows up into the sky with a smile

For happiness fills my heart and soul

Opening the shutters of my mind to let in its new

and exciting day’s soft glow

 

Do not judge me by who I am today, for I will be different tomorrow

Life is a merry-go-round, full of adventure and joy

It is up to me to decide how and when I want to ride

 

Take me as I am as day turns into night

For tomorrows adventures will determine

How I will brace myself to face the new light
