Moods shift and change

Regardless of what life may bring

Of course, internal and external are connected

But one day brings pain and others sing.

Feelings of purpose can us aid

That things have been accomplished

But some days no outcomes help

The joy and excitement demolished.

Taking ups and downs in our stride

A solution so apparent and strong

Can be so hard to grapple with

When for peace and happiness you long.

The platitudes commonly rolled out

Think of others living in despair

With not enough to eat, no place to sleep

So many people with real issues to repair.

Accepting what is there

Knowing that ups need downs

One day a visage that beams

Another, covered in frowns.

We never know what is next

But one thing can be predicted

That life cannot bring endless peace

And moods so often need to be shifted.
