LIFE GETS IN THE WAY!

LIFE GETS IN THE WAY!

We all want to have fun!

And laugh and play,

But sometimes, it seems,

Life gets in the way,

 

Work problems abound,

The kids need braces,

New problems are found

In everyday places!

 

But life’s not just receiving, but also giving,

We all have problems while we are living,

When you no longer have any strife,

It means you no longer have any life!   🙂

LIFE’S HUMPBACK WHALES

LIFE’S HUMPBACK WHALES

I have a humpback whale
Under my boat,

I don’t know whether
I’ll sink or float.

Outside, it’s foggy
And stormy, too.

I am overwhelmed,
What should I do?

Should I jump?
Abandon ship?

Or should I steer on,
Maybe avoid the dip?

Life is filled
With troubles and snares,

Lurking dangers,
Sickness and cares.

The key is not
To avoid all whales,

But to steer forward,
Even if you fail!   🙂
