Taking Turns
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Life has ups downs.

I've had my ups.
Where life was a breeze.

Now its my turn for me,
to struggle with life.

When my life was predictable,
It was boring, but I had no strife.

I assumed my life path was set.
Well fate had another path for me to take.

Working hard physically to make a life then.
Working hard mentally to have a life now.

With Life we have to take our turn at
the ups and downs.

We never know what life holds for us, we just have to get through it the best we can. Good poem.

Cap Yeh I figure if we have to put up with what we are dealt, why not make it easier and accept it. In stead of us being bitter and nasty.
