Who said life was fair?
That you got what you wanted
And lived happily ever after
Who said life was a fairy tale?
That all you needed where fairy-god mothers
They could magically cast a spell
And change your life forever
To bring along prince charming
That could rescue you from all misery
Who said life was an adventure?
That at the end of ever journey
You live to share the experience
Of what you encountered
Like a wild beast
Who said life was easy?
That every morning when you wake up
Breakfast is right beside you
That you don’t have to work, search or speak
Who said life was fun?
That you would spend your days laughing
Watch movies while having pizza all day long
But tell you what
Life is being happy in one season
Being heart-broken in another
Having lost hopes and dreams
Knowing you’re safe or when there is trouble
Meeting people that impact your life
And weeping because you lost one
Feeling fine at times and down otherwise
A house full of many, many surprises
Where you need to take a day at a time
A gift from God
And how you use it
Your gift back to Him
