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 in 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 into place


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

    Great viewpoint. Life can be a test but it isn’t a pass or fail thing, it’s just a test. Thanks for linking to In Other Words.

        I didn’t read it the first time and now I went back, wow I think this could be true. Right now I am just up in the air dear Franci! A new start at age 54! So, this really spoke to me! xxx

        I understand, believe me. I have had to restart a few times. What it taught me was to take things in my stride.

        That is good advice! xx
