Live With All Your Might

I live a few miles from the ocean, with my husband and our 3 boys. I always make an effort to spread kindness and light wherever I go.


Change comes along and takes a hold

It breaks the mold

Fills our lives with truths untold


Good truths or bad – we wait and see

Which will become our destiny

And we waiver in our uncertainty


As we make the breach

We grit our teeth

Hoping to hold all within reach


Who put us here, on this earth, with this life

To grapple with strife

And sink in delight


To smell the breeze

To hear the trees

To watch the plodding bumblebees


To smile, to cry, to laugh and to fight

To live this life with all of our might

To solve the puzzle of what is right


What's right for you is not right for me

You don't do what I do, or see what I see

And what about society


Do they have a right to have their say

And dictate our lives every day

To tell us what to wear and when to play


It's up to you - you will or you won't

Conform when you have to – rebel when you don't


Jump and dance and twist and twirl

Strap yourself in, as you will be hurled

Through this kaleidoscope-like world
