Life is a constant ebb and flow
Where the more I learn, the less I know.
The more I smile, the less I cry,
The more I live, the less I die.
The more I praise, the less I taunt.
The more I give, the less I want.
The deeper I love, the more poignant the pain.
The brighter the sunshine, the more refreshing the rain.
The more I forgive, the less I offend.
The more bridges I build, the less I must mend.
The more profound my hope, the deeper despair.
The darker the midnight, dawn is more fair.
The more wisdom I seek, the less foolish I grow.
The more gentle my spirit, the less anger I know.
The more grateful my heart, less self-pity will dwell.
The more tender my voice, the less loudly I yell.
The more I reach out, the less I'm alone.
The more I rejoice, the less I grumble and groan.
The more that I share, the less that I need...
The more generous I am, the less I know greed.
The more tolerant I am, the less that I judge...
The more that I skip, the less I must trudge.
The more piercing my sorrow, the sweeter my joys.
The steeper the mountain, greater victory enjoys.
The more kindness I sow, the more forgiveness I reap,
The less spiteful my words, the more peaceful my sleep.
The less that I yearn for, the more I receive,
The less that I question, the more I believe.
The more I seek peace, the less I know hate.
The more expedient the lessons, the less twists my fate.
The more I seek Light, the less darkness is near,
The more I trust God, the less I know fear.
Yes, the more that I learn, the less that I know.
The more I look back, the less distance I go.
The sweeter my words, the less bitter their taste.
The more talents I use, the less that I waste.
A journey of paradox, Life's a mystery at best...
Like the tide's ebb and flow, her wave's dip and crest.
