Golden cage

Should I mourn the time lost?
Should I cry over spilt milk?
Should I wonder what if this or that?
Should I think of what could have been?

It’s all water under the bridge
It was what it was
Can’t change a thing

I can dwell on it
I can feel sorry for myself
Or, I can count my blessings
And be happy again

Sometimes I wonder
Why we are so attached to this life
This life that brings us sorrow
And tests and trials

And how does the human spirit overcome?
How does is endure and not break down?
How does joy replace sorrow?
How do we start to laugh once more?

These questions remain unanswered
Most of the time
But I’m sure eventually
We will find out

The veil will fall from our face
We will see clearly
What was vague

But until then
We must sing our song
In this golden cage
We call life

Golden waterfall

Standing under the waterfall of grace
Refreshed with the beauty I see all around

Standing under the waterfall of grace
The sounds of water rushing, drowning all other sounds

Standing under the waterfall of grace
Thankful for all that has come my way
Joyful days to cheer my heart
Challenging times to make me strong

Standing under the waterfall of grace
Looking back, looking forward
Knowing that I’m whereI’m supposed to be
Looking forward to what’s to come!

Standing under the waterfall of grace
Light reflected in the water that falls
Creating a golden waterfall!
