This Puzzle Called Life
Pieced together throughout the years,
the outside border of this puzzle called “life”
presents itself as my human form.
Like a comfy pair of shoes, it is easy to wear
and visible for all to see.
Ah, but the inside pieces are much more
complex ~ hidden from view.
They are a reflection of my spirit, of my soul!
I have finally come to understand that these
puzzle pieces ought not be rigid or unyielding.
They should be sturdy, pliable and unrestrained
because life is about change and wisdom gained .
In the past, I was intimidated by puzzles,
put off by the frustration of not being able
to see how everything fits together.
Today, as I move my life’s puzzle pieces around,
and new shapes take form, I am filled
with curiosity and confidence.
These colorful images are a kaleidoscope which
reveal my intent, my purpose and the gifts within me!
