Coming Back Today

Everything is in flux,
don't be scared of change.
Opportunity is in the new,
a life re-arranged.

Keep gazing forward,
over the horizon.
The toils of the past are burning,
the embers are rising.

It all comes around,
if you have the patience.
The Universe will take care of you,
just keep the faith.

    Sorry, the Universe will not take of you, what you get in life is through sweat and tears, otherwise a thoughtful poem ! I have written worse, so keep at it
