When life throws you lemons, you make lemonade.
When life kicks you down a bad rabbit hole,
you have no choice but to go with it.
Flying down a rocky wonderland that’s anything but wonderful
as the different mythical beasts nip at your heels,
it seems even day-to-day now that hope is futile
instead of one of two of the only people and things
that kept me afloat on this river of tears and
Hope and Her. She and my own prayers.
My family was there and so was she,
standing in league as the only human beings
I cared to see and often still see now; How
curious it is that I took her for granted,
but all my personal sins I’ve recanted
and I would run a million miles through
it all again with a smile on my face as I panted
to get to where I am now; a place of solace,
a wondrous peace that although sometimes
disrupted is a far cry from the volcano
of my mind that one time hath so
And I’d do it all over for her,
she is my Christmas Eve,
I’d do it all again, the suffering,
the ups and downs, highs and lows,
For all the unrestrained ‘I love yous’
and kisses we now share in return.
And I’d do it all over, for her,
I’d do it all over with a smile on my face. – RSM
