Sweet and Salty

With every clever year,
lessons gained adjust life.
Happiness conquers fears,
letting joy fill lifetimes.

With every clever year,
connections are kinder.
Enjoy the now and here.
kill envy with blinders.

Good and bad, come and go,
perceptions will decide.
Fresh and salt waters flow,
life first takes, then provides.

With every clever year,
foreseen steps are measured.
Greater paths are quite clear,
tough ones, still endeavored.

With every clever year,
sorrows felt, make thoughts strong.
Hardened hearts disappear,
as kind acts linger along.

Droplets fall from the sky,
over waves on the sea,
holding years that pass by,
some are sweet, some salty.

– Grace Y. Estevez- Reddy
