life comes as is
no extra button sewn inside the sleeve,
no spare tire
in the trunk.
the twists & turns of circumstance
or illness catch us unaware,
each day a
thousand reasons to
despair, lament, forget the reason we are here.
and yet, despite the odds
the flame inside
each one of us burns true.
like butterflies emerging from cocoons,
we learn to spread our wings and fly.
we seek and we find the light.
- unknown author
out of the endless possibilities in life,
we only choose among those we believe we deserve.
