Here is a poem I wrote in 2012…don’t know what was going on in my life to inspire it, but think it is worth a share.
LIFE GOES ON (It is Eternal)
Life is like a boxing match.
It spars with you, throws a few punches, knocks you down.
You get up and go a few more rounds, sometimes dancing in circles; not connecting…or so it seems.
Like all boxing matches, you win a few and lose a few.
The wins are triumphant. They are what keep you in the fight.
You struggle with the losses, hope to overcome them and try not to lose too many rounds.
But then Life comes in with the big KO, the knockout, the one punch you weren’t expecting.
Brain cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, social cancers, relationship cancers and the count continues until Life throws up its Eternal arm; the winner in a fight you can never lose because Life goes on.
