Not All Clouds Drip With Rain

Look, If there is one thing I've learned,
It's That
Learning is observing, My friend!
.
Sunbeams glittering outside my window,
The air is cool,
The whispers of the breeze in the shadow
Make me wonder who are you.
.
Today turns into yesterday tomorrow,
Tears wash away sorrow.
Happiness cannot come without pain,
Not all clouds drip the rain.
.
Like a tiger in a den,
Individual power cannot always win.
Like a chicken popping out a shell,
You need many failures to live well.
.
Life is imperfect,
No path leads you to the perfect.
Believe that the sun will shine,
You can survive and feel divine!

not all experiences end in pain :-)

Victoria said...

"Real is better than perfect." which I first heard said by my much missed friend Mort Satten, is a personal mantra which your poe echoes.

Life at the cross roads
A time to reflect

A time to change
Know the pitfalls

Don't close your eyes
Perfection isn't in our world

The dew drops sometimes
Reminding the time; the journey

Tears have to fall
Learn the pain know the songs

When the tears drying up
A wise person transforms

Experience counts
It isn't a rope to life

Every day you see
The sun bathes differently

On the cross roads
Don't be afraid to take
