[104] Beautiful Happenstance

The moments appear, they ebb and flow

all day long—challenging us to grow

they offer choice and beg a smile

that deepens the twinkle in tearing eyes

softening the face, so we can rise,

even as wrath and fear appear

persisting and pulling us ever so near.

Be bold and take the breath

to be full when there is less

worth all the strength it takes

create the way and define the dance

to dare to see and take the chance

to fully live life's one, big, beautiful

and magical—happenstance.
