This Here Life

“This Here Life”

This here life,

It’s full of dreams.

This here life,

It’s full of plans.

Both crazy and big,

That some can’t understand.

On a daily basis,

My mind wanders off.

And I just imagine,

What I can achieve.

Where I can be,

If I only believe in me.

Setbacks and obstacles,

They can’t hold me down,

Not for long,

For my resilience shines through.

Bright and indestructible,

Even during times most blue.

Used to not ever see,

The purpose of my existence.

But now, however,

I do realize.

A certain little gift,

One I can’t deny.

Time is so limited,

As well as precious.

Determined to reach,

High for the sky.

To get the most,

Out of this here life.

The Faith We So Often Underestimate

Every now and then when I have to be reminded, I tell myself, ‘Do what you can down here and let God take care of the rest up there.’

A lot of times I used to find myself getting a little frustrated when certain things in life don’t happen the way I’d like for them to or exactly when I want them to. There were times where I’d start to doubt myself and just expect the occurrence of all the possible negative outcomes instead of positive. Naturally, I still do go back to that place sometimes.

But then I snap out of it and remember: God’s got me.

One valuable thing I’ve learned so far in my young life, is to really embrace the journey, through both the highs and lows.

I’m now a firm believer that everything really does happen for a reason.
