Today’s prompt was spicy. Here’s my take on it.
I have a story for you today,
One that’s sweet and a little spicy too,
One that will make your eyes water,
One that will make your heart beat faster.
A story of highs, a story of lows,
One that has joy and a little pain too,
One that will make you weak but leave you stronger,
One that will make you fail but leave you wiser.
A story you may have heard before,
But a story you have forgotten, of that I am sure,
So I’ll tell you again, listen near and listen clear,
Don’t forget to smile and don’t hold back a tear.
A story of survival, a story of courage,
Of a man, of any man*, could be you too,
Of the unknown future, of love, of hope and strife,
Of the most precious gift of LIFE…
A story of moments, some sweet, some bitter,
Of journeys taken and hurdles crossed, of dreams and fears too,
Of memories, some to be savored and some forgotten,
Of a life lived, of battles lost and won.
Every “life” is a story of it’s own- special and precious. Make it beautiful and worth it because you get just one life. Don’t let life’s downs stop getting you to the ups.
