Point of View

each one like a needle
jabbing in, jabbing out of our lives

We look at these pains
and we wonder, why
but we see no answer
and eventually, we move on

those times that make us
thankful to be alive

We look at those days
and we wonder, why
why are we fortunate enough to be so blessed
but we accept those blessings, and we move on

Life consists of so much more
than wake-up, eat, work, play, sleep
there are the emotions that run
the gamut of ecstasy to mind-numbing grief
and we…in each day…
only see the immediate. the now.
no context to understand the why of each moment

each moment…just a fragment of a greater whole
and if we could just see the bigger picture…
perhaps we would realize
that those needle-pains are needed
to stitch a greater picture

perhaps if we could see the whole
we’d see a patchwork-quilt…
coming together

to form a thing of beauty.
