“Life”

Life can be the sunshine,

On peaceful days with bright blue skies,

Or life can be the raindrops,

That fall like tears squeezed from your eyes,

Life can be the heaven,

That you’ll only reach through hell,

Since you won’t know that you’re happy,

If you’ve not been sad as well,

Life can teach hard lessons,

But you’ll be wiser once you know,

That even roses need both sunshine,

And a touch of rain to grow.

About Ayslyn'sCorner

I am an eclectic Pagan bordering on atheist who has made her way through a number of different spiritual spaces. You might wonder what a person self-identifying as an atheist has to discuss in a religion/spiritual context – and, well, so do I. That’s one of the things I aim to explore on Ayslyn's Corner.
