Life – A Marriane Poem
life oh, dear life
please be kind and gentle
don’t stab me like a pointed knife
been holding on

Looking at the photo prompt by Sadje was both humbling and comforting.
It’s not a new concept or sentiment that when life becomes so complex, we should look at the “silver lining” or “light at the end of the tunnel” or the “sunshine after the rain” concept.
Whether you’re making a difficult transition from school to work or between jobs, struggling with family issues, feeling depressed, or any other circumstance that makes life less than “enjoyable” or even “bearable” right now — remember that it’s just that: right now.
Keep the faith. Reflect on the myriad ways faith can have a purpose in our lives. There is religious and spiritual faith, of course, which may hold meaning for many people. But there is also faith in yourself, faith that things will turn out okay, faith that we are on a positive path, faith that we are meant to be here: in this school, in this job, in this field, faith that we met people for particular reasons, faith that we love certain people in specific ways for a reason, and faith that whatever happens you know you did the right thing. Some may call this faith “hope” or “trust”
