seeing life

March 2, 2010

Circumstances won’t control
Who I am, how I respond
There is a power within
The freedom to choose
Bitterness will rob
A person from seeing life
It is cancer of the soul
A person can heal
It takes time and good thinking
Daily looking to learn
Wisdom is available
Understanding is the key
More profitable than gold
Seek with all your heart
I began to seek
With intention at eighteen
Hungry not to repeat
The past handed down
My children would not suffer
The abandonment and loss

    How each of us long to provide what was not provided for us…sometimes it’s a blessing and sometimes it’s a curse for those we try to provide for…a enjoyed reading your poem.

  2. Great poem. So true about bitterness.
