More about life is a puzzle!

Updated on November 23, 2015

Life is a puzzle: poems and lyrics

Life is a jigsaw puzzle

It's not always fun and games 

Life is what you make of it 

And nothing ever remains the same 

Life can test your courage 

It can test your inner strength to endure

It can test your mental psyche 

Life is a challenge for sure

Life is an exciting adventure 

It can be a bumpy and rocky ride 

But life is what you make of it 

You don't need a "how to" guide 

Life has many dimensions 

Too enormous to even count 

But life should always have a purpose 

Void of any amount 

Life can be enlightening 

Indeed it can be challenging, too 

It can be a roaring opportunity 

But that depends on you 

But never throw in the towel 

Because things don't go your way

Just ride the tides of patience 

And keep focused on your dreams each and every day.

by Juanita Bratcher

Life is a puzzle with difficult and missing pieces

Life is a challenge - meet it.

Life is a gift - accept it.

Life is an adventure - dare it.

Life is full of sorrow - overcome it.

Life is a tragedy - face it.

Life is a duty - perform it.

Life is a game - play it.

Life is a mystery - unfold it.

Life is a song - sing it.

Life is an opportunity - take it.

Life is a journey - complete it.

Life is a promise - fulfill it.

Life is a beauty - praise it.

Life is a struggle - fight it.

Life is a goal - achieve it.

Life is a puzzle - solve it.

Life is full of love - love it.

The Puzzle of my life

Each piece shapes this grand puzzle,

this being, the puzzle of my life. . . 

With every moment that passes, 

another piece is added to the ongoing puzzle, 

So many pieces have been carefully placed, 

and so much have I learned,

And yet, there are still pieces that elude me. .

No matter how hard I try to affix them into this puzzle,

it just can’t be done, 

These mysteries, these hidden secrets,

I try and try, and yet as I am unable to understand,

No matter how I turn it, flip it, or move it around,

it just won’t fit. . . 

I suppose this means it’s just not meant to be, 

Or at least, 
just not yet. . . 

Or maybe these answers 
will only be found, 

Upon entering eternity. . .

Varied puzzle pieces
Varied puzzle pieces

Everything I needed to know about life I learned from a jigsaw puzzle!

1. Don’t force a fit. If something is meant to be, it will come together naturally.

2. When things aren’t going so well, take a break. Everything will look different when you return.

3. Be sure to look at the big picture. Getting hung up on the little
pieces only leads to frustration.

4. Perseverance pays off. Every important puzzle went together bit by bit, piece by piece.

5. When one spot stops working, move to another. But be sure to come back later (see #4).

6. The creator of the puzzle gave you the picture as a guidebook.

7. Variety is the spice of life. It’s the different colors and
patterns that make the puzzle interesting.

8. Working together with friends and family makes any task fun.

9. Establish the border first. Boundaries give a sense of security
and order.

10. Don’t be afraid to try different combinations. Some matches are

11. Take time often to celebrate your successes (even little ones).

12. Anything worth doing takes time and effort. A great puzzle can’t
be rushed.

13. When you finally reach the last piece, don’t be sad. Rejoice in the masterpiece you’ve made and enjoy a well-deserved rest.

Jigsaw puzzle of life

Like the seeds of the weeds 

In an Autumn wind 

We met out in mid air 

And fell together 

In a patch of ground 

And grew to be a pair 

But not a pair in the usual sense 

As you were much too tall 

With curly hair while mine was straight 

And I was much too small 

We were like interlocking pieces 

In the Jigsaw Puzzle of Life 

Now the puzzle is faded 

Half the pieces are lost 

It's limp with ten years wear 

Our edges are ragged 

And the fit is loose 

I guess that we'd best take care 

Our scene is pastoral 

Naive like our minds 

Not fun to be in some times 

We want a change from the fields and the skies 

And crave some dots or some lines 

We were like interlocking pieces 

In the Jigsaw Puzzle of Life

Kate & Anna Mcgarrigle Lyrics
