Life lent you

We would all rather float to the top of Everest but life’s about the footsteps not the easy options.

We would all rather have an open chequebook, instead life reminds me how close to broke I could be.

We’d all rather have the answers but life time and time again showed me no one knows tomorrows outcomes.

I’d love a luxury pad, acres as far as the eye could scan, I’ve settled for the walks I’ve took, everydays different if you care to look.

Rather take it in and hear myself say “Wow”, better to experience what you can than wish on if onlys, maybes just cloud your mind.

I’d rather take hikes in the rain than stay in the darkness waiting for the sun to drench my face.

I’d rather have a family and true friends than create false likes from the fake ones.

Rather take it day by day than look back and regret every choice I’ve ever made.

This story may have already been written but it’s up to me to fill the gaps you might be missing.

I think we’ve all lived life through eyes of The Joker, Joaquin Phoenix painted a realistic picture we’ve all witnessed one time or another.

Why does life throw so much chaos, disruption, disorder. Why live with a notion half full, half empty, flip it, it’s better than living with absolutely nothing.

Whatever level your living be grateful your still breathing. Money doesn’t make you happy, happiness comes from the memories that found you.

Doesn’t take a billionaire to experience treasures you just can’t purchase. Look around, think a second, see the gems life lent you.

Cry with the sad tones, smile with the great ones, be thankful you got the chance to share them.

Hi there, I'm Lee, I live in the UK in a small town called Blackburn. If I'm not working in the steel industry or training in karate, I'm out walking and taking pictures. I love taking photos and making them beautiful. I have struggled with depression and anxiety for a very long time. My writing run alongside my issues,  personal pitfalls, and experiences through life. Some experiences sad, some dark, but always honest. I treat my writing as my personal therapist., letting my thoughts out in words. This releases my inner demons and settles my personal head space.
