Life does not owe you anything (hour 8)

life does not owe you anything, even if you think so,

love does not owe you anything, even if someone loves you too,

 

happiness is not necessary, neither is sadness,

the way you live is dependent on none but you,

if you get luck and find life or love, celebrate; move, and do,

 

there is no assurance, or guarantee, that the next track is for you,

moving quickly as a deer does not make you succeed too

 

it is in the doing that you learn most, not in the schooling,

snoring under the stream will not make you a fish,

 

neither will wearing a cassock make you a priest,

life does not owe you anything, even if you think so,

 

there is no assurance, or guarantee, that the next track is for you,

if you listen well you might catch a fly with chopsticks,

or the fly will blur your vision and complicate your mission,

 

life will come to you if you can wait and not fly off the handle,

this is when life pays what it owes for your patience.

 

 

One thought on “Life does not owe you anything (hour 8)

  1. Good Day,
    Foremost, I need this lesson. With all our fighting and uncertainty, I suspect we ALL need this lesson. Thank you. Second, I have to point out my favorite lines:
    “. . . happiness is not a must. . . ” I sighed early on reading this
    “. . . snoring under the stream does not make you a fish” — I laughed outright
    “. . . the fly will blur your vision and complicate your mission” – that new perspective? Yes!
    Again, you have created an important lesson here.
    If only more lessons would come to us in verse. (smile)
