We're All Composers

Updated on February 5, 2014

Compose Your Life!

© 2001 VVeasey Publishing

8.29.2013

If life is like a song,

Compose one you won't mind

singing.

If it's more like a bell,

Fashion one you won't mind

ringing!

We're all composers

In one form or

another,

Every man and woman

Sister or

brother

We weave with the strands

of experience and

time,

every thought or feeling in

mind.

We marvel at our lives

and never pause to

reflect,

that we are cause

as well as the

effect.

When we compose in the light

and not in the

dark,

our lives become,

a WORK OF

ART!


Ludwig Von Beethoven

      "We weave with the strands of experience and time"

      Very good, v. I believe I may have found another hubber who will not leave me yawning.

      Thanks Seafarer Mama

      I agree with your decision to be the "composer" of your life

      Forgive but don't forget or cling to the memory of the event.

      Awesome poem to read, with beautiful composer portraits and music. Voted Up, up, up, and Liked. Will Pin it, too, when I am on my own computer.

      In the meantime...something recently happened in the life of my family that is unfortunate - neighbors being unkind to my daughter.

      I could stay angry with my neighbors, but I have decided to let go of anger. I have decided to be compassionate forgive them their ignorance, and the hurt that their ignorance is causing. It is an opportunity to make positive changes in our lives...what we do with our time...who we spend our time with ~ such as neighbors who have been kind and supportive.~:0) We will heal because we have decided to heal...because it is much better to give ourselves over to what brings us joy.

      Perhaps I do not show it well because I am tough and gruff. But my momma taught me to thank those who add to our lives - no matter how.
