Abundance

We have been admiring its beauty,
The image of completeness and
what nature gives us so fully.
It’s always a special thing to
recognize and see the plentifulness
in things around us. Just as what
is in a well. Fully, simply flowing river.
What thrives in nature’s simplicity
is almost always beautiful to just see
its natural yet simple, plentiful addition
in life.

Seconds

It’s hard to make the good times last with how short of a life we have been given.
We choose wisely to live it without much
focus on the time flying as to preserve
the beauty of the moments we’re in.

No life would have been fully valued
when it’s spending time that could
be spent on valuing the moment you
have, to live over the time you have
left. Every second has a purpose and
every second should never be used to
think on what seconds were lived or
what are left to live.

Many people say they hate
their life but really do
you hate it or is it the
way it has gone. We did
not choose the life we were
given nor did we want
this life but we still can
be a little thankful for it.
I’ve been to hell and back
but I have not yet given up.
I see people struggle everyday
with shit that should never
happen. The stuff that happens
on a day to day basis can
and will affect peoples’ lives.
Why hate your life when people
would die for the life you’re
living. Being thankful and patient
can do a lot for you.
