Reflection and Poem: Bullet Proof–Life is short…


Life is short–Bullet Proof  by M. W. Hardwick

Once, I thought  I was  “bullet proof” and one who could risk everything

Now I’m getting older and my risk taking has taken a turn toward caution.

There is a saying, “Life is short,  art long, opportunity fleeting, experience deceptive, judgment difficult.”

Maybe there is a limited amount of courage and most is used up by impulsive and youthful acts

I have questions and puzzles about life that will never be answered.

Yet, I am learning to live with ambiguity and embrace uncertainty

Cherish your time here, learn from mistakes , while you can, time moves on…

Enjoy uncertainty and live with anxiety of not knowing …

Yesterday is but today’s memory, tomorrow is today’s hope…

It’s never to late to just enjoy the moment

And live in the “here and now”….

The “here and now”

The “here and now”…
