Little Ups and Downs

Time still goes on,
and life brings new light

So, what happens from here?

We fight but still love one another
We forgive each other

Even when we act stupid and go into a rage,
We can go over and say were sorry while hanging our heads

We calm down and
give each other a hug

And say we love each other.

Life has it's ups and down
so long as we don't give up

We can take on anything,
So bring it on!

I thank you

Ha, that was poetic in itself. Thanks for the comment, and glad I could share something that would make someone else feel.

Hey, it me again! Your poem is true. Life is made by choices and what you are tuaght and if you want to live up to them.

"Fight fire with fire, you'll end up with ashes."
"A charming lady does not follow the crowd, she is herself."
