Too Short

I say to you now that life is too short

Too short for your grumbling and mumbling

Complaining and ungratefulness

There is a great big world out there

Beyond your whirlwind of negative thinking and greed

It is so beautiful

If you would only open your eyes to its magnificence 

Pause for a moment

Just take in all in

This wonderful life that surrounds you

It’s too short 

Not to appreciate 

Tomorrow it could vanish

Leaving today as your last

What is the legacy 

That you would leave behind?


The pages of my life seem to turn faster these days.

Each word spills off my tongue in sweet anticipation of the next.

There is a flow to my story that was ever so absent before. 

Strength resides in patience, where fear was once so prevalent. 

Fate is now my beacon; a light to guide my way…

To destiny.
