Differences surround the life we live... regardless of good or bad. However it is what you do as an individual that makes those differences a pleasant or horrible experience.

Photo By Janis Grodums

The differences between this and that
are exact, the words do track.
The differences between them and us
are of trust, fake bonds earn rust.
The differences between here and there
are beyond compare, emotions stare.
The differences between happy and sad
make you mad, when choices bad.
The differences between right and wrong
are your song, corrections long.
The differences between first and last
are the past, betray next task.
The differences between hear and listen
are not forgiven, with lost impressions.
The differences in these thoughts
are what’s bought, instead of sought.
The differences between you and me
are what you see, not reality.
The differences are... just that... differences.

Amen! Reminds me of the adage (paraphrase), life is 10 percent of what happens to us and 90% of how we handle it.

That really applies to the phenom of "congested rush hour traffic." (smile)
