Go With The Flow


Kiwi Brummie Admin' Team

If the sky above seems cloudy,
And you are left out in the rain,
If you are searching for a rainbow,
But the colors bring you pain,

If your world is not revolving,
And there is no end in sight,
If you are looking for the sunshine,
But all you see is night

If all around are smiling,
But all you can do is frown
If you are tired of all this living,
When life just brings you down,

Then look beyond your teardrops,
At the wonders of this land,
The beauty of a flower,
Like velvet in your hand.

Feel the air around you,
The smell of new mown hay,
Laughing children in the park,
The innocence there at play,

Imagine floating with a butterfly,
As she flutters between the trees,
Or the whispers of the ocean,
On warm hot summer's breeze,

Think of the taste of candy floss,
As it melts upon your tongue,
Or the melody of morning birds,
As they greet each day with a song,

Remember words of beauty,
Told in your mother's embrace,
Feel the gentleness of her touch,
As she softly kissed your face.

Seek the good within you,
Cast the clouds from your sky,
Don't look toward the pavement,
But hold your head up high,

Think not what life owes you,
But of all you have to give,
Forget about tomorrow,
Then you can start to love.

So bless this age you are living in,
With the gifts you can bestow,
Don't disgrace the stream of life,
Go gently with the flow.

:D I like this and felt like sharing it with you all :)

:D Sorry folks can't take all the credit for this one, had it sent to me by a friend and just changed a few bits here and there... (Plagiarism if you like) :( I thought it was so true though. Most of mine I keep to myself, or send to the person, or people they are written for at that moment in time. :)
