The Reel

One, one, twenty one, a new day starting a new

Chapter in your life.

There is a need at times to wish for a new

Beginning, erasing all that came before.

While your mind slips from one memory to another,

Like a movie reel replaying moments of laughter,

Difficulty, obstacles, challenges, even despair.

Are you watching a comedy, drama, suspense, or horror?

Interestingly, they all coexist in the life that we live.

Life is more dramatic, comedic, intriguing, and satisfying

Than any movie or book you’ve watched or were reading.

It raises so many questions of existence, faith,

Identity, even belief in God, whose reasons for our trials

Are His alone. We, as people, turn those obstacles

Into evil and something to be feared.

While the reality is that those challenges are our ‘tests’

On earth, where we are judged by how we react to all our problems,

And not for the existence of the complication itself.

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
