Life's like an eclipse,
With a sublime mix of good and bad,
Light and Dark

Sometimes we lose our path
With no way of knowing who to trust.

We can't take advice from friends,
Cos they are stuck in the same boat as us.
Can't take advice from those who have made it,
Cos their lives seem out of reach.

But sometimes we also excel.
And we don't know who to thank.

Do we thank God and the people around us,
For helping us get this far?
Or do we blow our own horns,
Cos it was our hard work that got us here?

There are too many options to choose from.
That's why there is no recipe to life.

So to each, his own
