Wishing and Living
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2015
In the beginning, we find ourselves wishing
For things we feel are missing.
As children grow older our lives change,
We learn to rearrange.
Wishes no longer grant our wants,
We no longer get a response.
But through hard work and determination,
We will find our own salvation.
We will realize life is much more than about getting,
It's about loving, giving and not quitting.
In order to live, we need to forgive.
And let what's true be heard by all.
We need to let lose, and get our good shoes,
And never be singing the blues.
Wishing no longer shapes my living,
My living shapes my wishing.
More Poems about Life
Is there anyone so wise as to learn by the experience of others?
Instead of worrying about the challenges in life, face them squarely, head on, with the conviction that you are aligned with a
universal presence which will guide you into your true place and highest good as you expect it and accept it.
Don McArt, The Mental Makeover
Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes, and adversity is not without comforts and hopes.
My momma always said life was like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're gonna get.
I sometimes wonder whether all pleasures are not substitutes for joy.
Being cool means living life in harmony with your environment, and making the most of what's around you.
