#FWF Free Write Friday: The circle of Life

November 15, 2013


the ebb and flow

of life

it comes and goes

seasons change

from infancy

and for some old age

innocence and trusting

life is not everlasting

experience, choices


time moves swiftly

the body slows


and beauty

some live

but are shackled


not free


life’s traps

that keep them bound

as they slowly die…inside

facing older age

and recognizing

that time

may be short

but I rejoice in each day

gratitude swells

and goes beyond

what comes my way

not without pain..or sorrow

tears come

but laughter and joy will follow

in the circle of life…
