Life can change on a dime

You never know why yours will shift into a downward spiral

It is wise to bare this in mind whenever poised to judge and castrate

The homeless,

The hungry,

The destitute

The lost,

The forsaken,

Those struggling with mental health illness

We all got issues

Everybody's got a story

Life is seldom what you see at first glance

Life changes on a dime


Someone is born,

Someone dies,

Someone laughs,

Someone cries,

Someone gains prosperity,

While others drown in poverty

Loses affluence,

It’s euphoric,

It’s inconsolable

It’s incarcerated,

It’s freed

It’s discovered,

It’s obscured

It’s predictable

It’s random

Its opportunity

It’s the now

Its life

Live in the now

Nothing is promised


Life, changes on a dime

It goes on regardless of woes

Never skipping a beat as time marches on

Days...come and go

The sun continues to glow

The moon continues to show

Not pausing for a moment

As lives fall apart

Here today,

Gone tomorrow

No time to sit and wallow in sorrow

Live every moment

Don’t live in torment

Nothing is promised

Nothing is guaranteed

Soak up love and laughter like wild weed


Life, it changes on a dime

It’s wonderfully sublime

Seemingly perilously illogical in its continuum

As it marches with us, without us, on us, through us, beyond us

Cherish each moment as it carries us on its momentum

Even the ones you complain are insane

Learn to smile again and again

A remedy that’ll get us through the strain

Of its continual transformations

When we much prefer to stand still

  1. I know exactly what you mean. It was a gorgeous, sunny day today and they're telling us to stock up on supplies because Tropical Storm Flossie is headed our way.

    1. hmmmmm...truth is we really don't know what's around the corner for us so it prudent that we all learn to live and love each day.

  2. Wow, so true. its so easy to get caught up in all the negatives in life and forget to appreciate the numerous positives.


    1. Absolutely....we must not allow ourselves to get trapped in the negative no matter how challenging that represent.

  3. This is beautiful. Do you do spoken word poetry?

    1. You know @iola, though i know of spoken word, have listened and enjoyed some of it I have never done it or seen it live. I have a friend who invited me after reading some of my work. Perhaps i should give it a go on one of those open mic, amateur night.

  4. Life can change in a split second. A good reminder for us to be humble and cherish our moments. Have a smooth week and be blessed RP...Gbird

  5. So right it can indeed great words.
