Life.... (National Poetry Month #16)

Where there is sunshine and roses, 
There are bugs and thorns.
Where there is spring rain
There are mud puddles.
Where birds sing joyfully
There is poop on your car

Life is sunshine on your face,
With a sunburn on your nose.
Life is a walk in the woods,
With a mosquito bite on your leg.
Life is swimming in a lake,
Filled with ice cold water.

Rainbows need the rain.
Sweet offsets the bitter.
Happiness comes from the sorrow.
Sunrise follows the dark.
The calm craves the storm.
Perfection lies in the imperfect.
