Life-changing events can be hard to take,
Especially when they signal the make or break.
Navigating tension, anxiety and fears,
Attempts to make light of it turn into tears.
Trying to be strong as things threaten to unravel,
Tip-toeing carefully across molten gravel.
Not knowing when to talk or just not breathe a word,
But afraid of the consequences if you are not heard.
Life throws many obstacles across the paths we walk,
The good, the bad, chiding us to meander along their fork.
But ultimately things have a habit of working out on their own,
And it’s irrelevant whether you greet them with a smile or with a groan.
Following the notion that things happen for a reason,
That days will pass and year on year life moves with the seasons.
It becomes that much easier to stand aside and enjoy what is in store,
And then you’ll find undoubtedly that you’ll enjoy it that much more.
Stress and worry may appear but it’s better to lay them aside,
Positivity and strength make anything possible; it’s easy when you try.
In the face of other’s doubts, look at what could actually be,
Because then, in the end, you’re likely to spend your life happily.
