Sometimes the things closest to us
are furthest from our reach.
we strive for them
we wait for them
we put our hearts belief in them.
sometimes we deserve them,
often we just need them.

Sometimes on lifes path
we may stumble
we may fall.
we will inevitably get hurt.
there will be laughter and tears
and occasionally a pain so searing
it can take your breath away.

Sometimes life is not lived,
the world can stop
and you find yourself lost,
alone in the darkness.
We will seek out the light and
try to learn from our mistakes.

Sometimes we have to reach deep within
and tell ourselves
we will be ok, we will make it,
sometimes we will believe it.
We will be vulnerable
lonely and weak.
we will search for strength
sometimes we may find it.

Sometimes we will give up hope
when hope is all we have
we will cling to the little things
and take solace in them.
Sometimes everything will work out
exactly as it is meant to
and sometimes
thats exactly what we want.
