In one's life
It seems there's always something missing
there's always something wrong
there's always something misplaced
Life would've been a lot better
If this were that and that were this
But reality just wouldn't allow things
to be exactly how we want them to be

In one's life
There will surely be some things to desperately long for
Things that that one should learn to accept, understand,
and be patient with

I just hope that
in my three decades of continuously living and breathing in my corner of the world
I have already earned enough wisdom
To teach me to face each day
emotionally and intellectually, in their right proportions
To help me figure out when to let go

and, most importantly, when not to
