Dear Life

Dear Life,
Youíve been a roller coaster so far,
Iíve felt the lowest lows in the trenches
Iíve seen the highs up on the Himalayas,
Iíve felt every emotion,
Every laugh, every drop of tear,
Disguised with the pitter-patter of rain that fell on my face,
Every time I came out surviving,
Sometimes achieving and sometimes failing,
Iíve learnt so much and Iíve grown up too quick,
Iíve learnt to both love you and despise you,
Iíve celebrated you and Iíve wanted to end you,
Iíve been my strongest and weakest,
And for all that Iím thankful.

Iíve written of you when there was negativity,
When I was broken and writing was the only outlet,
I realised I never wrote when things were going good,
I wrote of my demons but never of the angels that got me through,
I realised I needed to be reminded of them too,
I needed to pay homage to them,
Dear Life,
As much pain youíve shown me,
Youíve shown me happiness too,
As ruthless as you have been,
Youíve shown me mercy too,
And for that Iím thankful.
