Yin Yang...You Rang?
by Patricia Chutko

Have you ever had life stop you short,
And you watched your dreams evaporate?
Such is the time when you see
Who you really are and what you can create...
Perhaps a new link in the family tree
Where a chain had broken away...
Perhaps a kind word to people in need
Who can't handle another bad day.
Each of us in on the same page
In terms of living in a chaotic age.
Some are strong where others are weak
But I've yet to meet people
Without help to offer
Or encouragement to seek...
So when you cross paths with another
As strangers...
Remember that life is fraught
With many dangers...
Burdens are lighter when carried by two-
I could lift part of a load
If it were shared by you.
