Emotions Are Fickle



Reshuffling priorities,
broadens the width of your scope.
And gets you to search your soul,
for a faint glimmer of hope.

Life's more than a fantasy,
or pantomime rehearsal.
Luck leaps merrily along,
then makes a sharp reversal.

The beauty of winter's white,
leaves autumn's color in doubt.
And when tears irrigate guilt,
only anxieties sprout.

Reality devastates
destinies sculpted by time.
And emotions are fickle,
often turning on a dime.

Life is meant to be absorbed,
or it will just flow away.
And it's best if you start by,
appreciating today.
