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.
