A Poem: It is just a day

It is just a day, count each with a gracious heart

There are those who would trade theirs for yours

Treasure the days you have no matter how dark

There is light in everyday but never the promise of clarity

Illumination requires thought and practice

A quiet reserve when the world seems to fall around you

Storms bring rain, and rain brings life to souls parched

Drink the water, bathe in the moment and remember

It is just a day, count each with a gracious heart

An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings




About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.
