  • life is a balance beam
    self -healing love
    versus
    self-destructing hate
    my beam tottered
    on these extremes
    never inbetween
    I now just beam

    life is a jigsaw puzzle
    eureka! it fits
    versus
    a pile of pieces
    I know each piece by touch
    I now go by touch

    life is an epic poem
    keeping my own narrative
    versus
    copying someone elses'
    verse by verse
    at least it 's my epic

    life is a game of chance
    winner takes all
    versus
    never getting a break
    life itself is not a game
    I still take my chances

    life is a battle ground
    war weary and broken
    versus
    a warrior's creed
    I learned the art of self-defense
    I never pick a fight, thank you!

    life is a black box
    no peering inside
    versus
    living on the surface
    there's a limit to both
    I don't worry about it

    life is a never-ending story
    seeking to begin anew
    versus
    death's inevitable tolling
    I begin with end in mind
    I'm ready for whatever comes

    life can be a moment
    coming
    versus
    going
    a momentt can be forever
    i'm always here for you!
