The Hand You’re Dealt By Michael W. Raley
Swimming under a bridge that I’ve already burned;
It’s amazing how quickly your life can turn.
One small misstep or stumble
And down the mountain you go to be humbled.
The deck is stacked against me,
But, I’ll break even when I get to eternity.
These times have no rhyme or reason,
No winter, spring, summer, or fall,
It’s just one long and confusing season.
It’s high time to steady the weary knees and stand tall.
Trying to keep aflame the Divine Spark
Is a tall and mighty task
When you’re enveloped by the dark.
I seek the true way, in the Light I want to bask.
When the cards of fate were dealt,
I wasn’t asked what I thought or felt.
I’m learning not to complain,
Because it won’t change the circumstances or take away the pain.
Though this path I didn’t choose,
I will have to accept times of victory and a loss or two.
This is all part of a Divine Plan
That after ages still remains a mystery to every woman and man.
The only constant is change.
Thus, we must learn to adapt and rearrange.
Time is our most valuable resource,
So, take what you have left and plot a new course.
