I didn’t know life would be this hard/easy

I don’t know if someone warned me.

Maybe they did.

I’ve heard phrases of working hard and being strong.

I wonder if they were ever directed towards me.

I didn’t know life would be this hard.

I didn’t know life would be this easy.

There are some people who figured it out;

there are some people who never did.

And then there’s those still trying to figure it out.

And sometimes they never do.

I can’t say I know in which category I stand.

Maybe I stand above;

watching it all go down like the game it really is.

I came here to win, I tell myself.

I did.

And I’m not leaving until I do.

The definition of winning varies from one to another.

Winning to me

is knowing life;

knowing Self;

knowing God;

and knowing strength.

Perseverance is key.

It always will be when trying to accomplish something.

So today, I persevere.

Do you?

Happy Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse
