Stages of life
Written by Tan Nguyen
Rivers lacking the water,
Which makes it flow,
Eventually running dry as days goes by,
Waiting desperately for the rain to come,
Causing a flood to fall from the sky.
Rivers may be dry today,
Where only yesterday the water overflowed,
Tomorrow there’s always hope,
Unable to know with certainty,
What tomorrow shall bring with it.
Today we may be happy,
Events and circumstances,
May break that spell any moment,
Life is unexpected,
Never know what will happen,
Life’s a game we play,
Living our lives and handling,
All the problems within ourselves,
Problems which lingers always,
Invading our personal spaces,
Despite all this ongoing drama,
We still lived another day.
Stages of life,
Stages of our growth,
Both spiritually and personally,
Lessons learnt through diversities,
Through the strength and courage,
The wisdoms we’ve acquired,
Through all the stages of our lives.
