Moments
  

Life is a whirlwind of moments

Moments that bring joy and happiness
sorrow and pain
fear and anxiety
anger and rage

Its these moments that help to shape and define who we are
Its these moments that we take for granted
Learn from yesterday, and look forward to tomorrow
But then you would ask
"What happens to today"

Today you appreciate those moments
For they may bring joy and happiness
sorrow and pain
fear and anxiety
anger and rage

But without these moments
you wouldn't be you.

Someone once told me difficult times define us... not ones that lay paths to streets called 'Easy'. Just as diamonds are forged within mines deep in the earth... so we are forged in the mines of 'human trials' filled with pain, suffering, and heartache. We are better for the unpleasant experience. Yes... I agree, it is not so much what we suffer as much as what we learn from it... this too shall pass

excellent format with the inner tercet at lines 3,4,5, and again repeated before the final two lines as it was introduced after the first two lines ... this is an excellent refrain or chorus as it can be placed anywhere ... repeating forms are my favorite things ... i really like your poetry ... please write more oO!

I like the reality to your words and the way you lead the reader to the end. Nicely done.

Your wisdom shines through here. Yesterday may be memories in our minds but we do not have to live in yesterday. Good thinking here!

Very wise words. People forget that they grow more in the bad times than they do in the good.
