Life in a ball.
A tiny capsule of life.
Where we may fall.
And then rise again from strife.

Life can be short.
It can easily stop.
It may be sport
To some of us or not.

Take advantage of it.
Ride the choppy wave.
Live life to the fullest.
And be worthy of a save. 

The bouncing ball could be yours.
Take hold of the ride.
It departs on many tours.
Take care not to hide.

    Reblogged this on The Last Wave: A NDE and commented:
    This is a poem that fits in so well with survival and reflects the choice of being worthy of the chance at life. Very well said, Susanne (who is a natural poet who has the ability to feel something and then put it into words).
