Some events are complicated
They happen with accidental surprise
unwanted, undesired like cancer.
Some events are heart wrenching
stripping and tearing the heart
like separation or divorce.
Some events are beautiful
opening feelings of love and compassion
like child birth or adoption.
Some events are powerful
compelling one to wonder in awe
like the ocean or a star filled night.
All events come with lessons
that bring strength, courage, and wisdom
As long as we see them that way.
