Kaleidoscope of Life

My life is a kaleidoscope
With each twist and turn

The foundation
tumbles
spirals
crashes

Yet if you look closely
A new view has been created

The structure
changed
stronger
brighter

  17. This is really quite profound, Lisa. Parts of our lives are interwoven so that what we do today affects the outcome of tomorrow. The kaleidoscope is a great metaphor. And I like the change for the positive at the end! Brava!
