The sky is the limit or so they say
So I reach for the beyond
Life owes you nothing
So I give it a gift instead
Joy comes to those who wait
I'll sit here and read a book
Seek and you shall find
I'll keep looking
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Everywhere I look there is beauty, even in the darkest of the knight
Today is a gift
I will unwrap it with the greatest of joy
Tomorrow is not promised
I will take what I can get!

    I love your usage of cliches in a way that creates a narrative and gives a voice and personality to the narrator!

      Thank you so much, it had taken a lot of courage to put my poems put for the world to read. Thank you again!

    I agree such beautiful use of sayings, and mantras. Beautiful poem.

    Fifth line from the bottom you have "knight" instead of "night" But loving the powerful positivity!

      Thank you! I actually meant to use knight, our world right now is so caught up on the color of ones skin. Even the darkest of knights are beautiful

    Seeking the positive side of things is a great way to live life. Takes a lot of gratitude and optimism. Keep it up :)
