"Life Is...."

Life is full of twist & turns, ups & downs, laughs, smiles, tears, & frowns...

always something new to learn, risk to take, & rules to break...

a hand to hold, a tear to wipe away, a shoulder to cry on, a child to hug, someone to apologize to, & someone to ask for your forgiveness...

in the end it's not who has the most...it's who willingly takes on life that truly wins.

"in the end it's not who has the most...it's who willingly takes on life that truly wins".

Well said, Very wise words. material possessions are nothing compared to mental ones (memories, dreams etc).
great poem.
