The Trick ๐ŸŽฏ

โ€œTHE TRICKโ€  a poem for the day after Easter (April 13, 2020)

Lifeโ€™s somber lesson.  โ€œLife gives   and then it takes away,โ€

Sometimes the sky is blue, and sometimes it is gray.

The sun shines and then quite soon?  we have some rain.

Who knows why   there is comfort    and then thereโ€™s pain.

Your futureโ€™s bright, with hands strong and eyes without strain;

Before too long, strength, it wears.  Yes it starts to wane. Dismal feelings fail

I ran and ran with smiles, laughter, and, of course, Iโ€™d jump,

And off and on the field  with boys and girls, often we would bump.

Off and on.  Occasionally. and then more with frowns weโ€™re met.

With less of humor and exaltation for for most is set,

Off and on.  Occasionally. and then more with frowns weโ€™re met.

With less of humor and exaltation for for most is set,

The mind, filled with showers, too soon will I regret.

To whom shall I appeal?  โ€œDo not withdraw; please let,

Me hang onto those things I have acquired?

Or grown used to.  Of loves and lovers I am not tired.โ€

No answer comes, so I forlorn, No answer comes, so I forlorn,

May then regret for some time?  The day that I was born.

The trick then?  (IF there is one.)  This is what I say:

โ€œDonโ€™t get too upset.โ€  

It wonโ€™t do a bit of good, not a bit anyway.

You have then there, your lesson, regarding what is lost.

๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

Can you get not too upset, as in this life youโ€™re tossed?

What you have lost, what you hold dear.

A sphere of sorrows   and of fond memory,

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)

Is that everything is the reverse of itself …..as on and off …costs nothing for the light to be switched on or off …..its only by such action that companies charge a lot as they control that part not us ….
So one day soon everything will be reverse of ourselves not all but just a few like me and you the good bits will remain and those bad bits will wane but light of God will shine through his children once more Amen.
