Life has a way of bringing us to our knees
Usually this event seems catastrophic, but,
in truth the precursor to it was as gentle,
like the soft caress of a feather on skin,
a whisper of warning that soon grows louder
a nudge to get our attention lest we head for the fire.
When we fail to heed these subtle warnings,
we get a scolding from life, & when we still don’t respect it
then the major life-altering event happens. If we are lucky
we survive it to learn and live a better existence. I heard
the universe say though, that some only realize at the final hour.
Do you feel your gentle warning, or are you already in your
catastrophic event? As long as you have breath, FIGHT BACK
