Life Ė You arenít a four letter word,
You just are not what you seem,
You are not as straight as I thought,
You are crooked like the spiral that goes roundÖ

Like thereís no day without the night,
No joy without pain,
No rose without thorns,
No calm without storm,
No white without black,
No light without dark,
No heaven without hell,
You are like the kite that doesnít fly without a stringÖ

Life, Life, Life Ė You arenít just a four letter wordÖ

Thereís no love without hate,
No plant without the seeds,
No name without fame,
No sound when it is silent,
You know very well,
That I canít even leave you,
For without you,
I would be dead.

Life Ė You are more than just a four letter wordÖ




 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you donít,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That todayís efforts will pay for tomorrowís fun.

Indeed, life is a helluva lot more than a four letter word. Well expressed here!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

I find your poem to be very truthful. You have to have both the good & the bad, although it's not always wanted. Keep writing for a true poets hand never rests.
