If life is a friend…

If life humiliates me, you are receiving its grace.

If life turns its back on me, you are receiving its warmest embrace.

If life gives me tears, you are receiving its broadest smile.

If life deprives me, you are receiving its abundance.

If life turns my horizon cloudy, you are receiving its illuminated path.

If life renders me homeless, you are receiving its lofty shelter.

If life gives me sleepless nights, you are receiving its calmest slumber.

If life lays my bed with thorns, you are receiving its bed of roses.

If life showers me with mud and stones, you are receiving its shower of flowers and fragrance.

If life clothes me with rags, you are receiving its embellished garments.

If life stifles my voice, you are receiving its unbridled freedom for your voice.

If life restrains my will power, you are receiving its free rein to do as you will.

If life gives me bitter and sour taste, you are receiving its sweet and delicious taste.

If life brings me misery, your are receiving its delightful goodness.

If life embraces you today, be sure it may turn against you tomorrow.

If life humiliates you today, be sure things may turn in your favour.

If life is turning towards you, be sure not to be complacent.

If life is ever changing, that is the only constant thing.

If life is futile with all its endearments, here today gone tomorrow.

If life is beautiful, it can also be ugly.

If life sparkles, it can also be gray.

If life honours, it can also debase.

If life is rolling in a cycle, your turn may soon come.

If life is a friend; be sure it has never been a loyal friend.

Look around you, take heed and be warned.
