Ponder the Resolve


Surely, you know I don’t jest

Life itself can seem like a test

When we think we can’t win

Ponder the resolve again and again

Thoughts may be on the brink of decay

But, sing with the birds the very next day

Things in life may not go right

Maybe, in theory just for spite

Things in life may not go left

Keenly aware the future is bereft

Life itself can be a test

Strive we will, to do our best

Let us never act in haste

Let life’s shards fall in place


“Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.”
