Up one day,
down the other way.
Attitudes of motion,
up and down like
waves of the ocean.
Lifes tidal waves splashing,
devils touch lashing.
One day we're happy,
the next day we're zappy.
God offers protection,
if we choose his selection.

World affairs constantly change,
some attitudes rearrange.
Murphy's law reigns dominant,
overcome, adapt, & improvise subordinate.
Some fight hard to control,
others almost end up in a hole.
Rather than keep climbing out,
some stay on a stable route,
regardless of circumstances,
and other life dominances.

I'm in love with stability,
not up and down mobility.
You'll find me laughing,
when I should be crying.
Hardly will you ever catch me sad,
but at times I do feel a little bad.
Icons like depression,
have taught me a stability lesson.

Staying at the top,
cancels out the up from bottom hop.
Nothing with going down,
but a hard rock ground.
It's best to at least maintain,
forget going down the drain.

Some say,
"isn't this hard to do?"

No harder then climbing out of a hole,
everytime something difficult unfold..

The only difference in people who keep flying,
and people who go up and down crying,

is

Atitude!

Strong positive attitude regardless.

Keeping the plane flying,
takes a good pilot trying.
Planes do fall,
when engines stall.
In the cockpit,
a determined aviator,
will be dealing
with it.

If your stability won't institute,
keep a good parachute.

If you have to crash,
make some plans to rehash.
Don't remain down,
when there's joy
to be found.

Fight hard to rise,
a good struggle may,
surprise.

G

Truly wise write, Grady. A good struggle does invigorate sometimes; especially when its successful.
