Trading Places

Life can be many things

it can be exciting, jovial, frightening , worrisome and many more.

Yet one thing we all share in common

is that we all feel and experience these range of emotions,

but react to each of them in our own unique way.

Today, someone is celebrating the sweet joy of becoming a parent,

as another parent lives to mourn the loss of their child.

I often think if life is a cruel joke,

and I’m waiting for a punchline that will never come.

Life can be many things,

and even though I can’t walk in your shoes or trade places,

but I can try to understand,

and be a willing ear to listen and learn.

We all have a journey that we take,

that takes us places and situations, and meet people

that in some near future

it will all hopefully make sense.
