Puzzle ~ Acrostic Poem

Pieces that seem not to fit
Ultimately find their place
Zigzagging in and out
Zapping thoughts
Legitimately teaching lessons
Every step of the way.

It's always the small pieces

that make the

big picture.

Completing Life's Journey

Life is like a giant puzzle
full of mystery and roadblocks,
as we take each step
down a winding trail
to fulfill our destination.

Learning new techniques
as we meet failure head-on,
determined to succeed
no matter what the cost.

A journey of ups and downs,
highs and lows,
as we put each piece together
finding the place we’re meant to be.

Solving a Puzzle

There’s a mystery in a jigsaw puzzle,
making your brain tick
as it comes together
to form a perfect picture.

The border alone is difficult,
but each segment is a unique
like the way the ends meet
or the splashes of color join.

As your eyes scan each tab,
hoping to connect each exquisite piece
one by one,
determined to solve it.

Finally creating a masterpiece
designed by another,
feeling relieved
as you snap a pic on your camera,
before tearing it apart
for someone else to enjoy.
