The speaker (my neighbor and friend) talked about how stones in a river get tumbled and parts broken off of them until they eventually get rounded and polished.
Then he likened that to us and how we also get polished by time by getting our rough edges worn off.
It's OK to have a stone in your path. It's OK to get worn a bit - you'll simply be more polished.
The leaky pipes that keeps me up at night The constant snore The distant cough And the leaky pipe that keeps me up at night The wind whispers The vicious growl And the leaky pipes that keeps me up at night.
-tossing and turning j.j.
The Moon, she laughs Because Even she knows The **** pipes will never be fixed.
Decisions Eanie meanie minie mo one can not decide like so your past is gone, let it go eanie meanie minie mo
We think they were childish games to play yet it tells our future each and every day
Its a 50-50 shot you could go ether way But there is no turning back
One step in the wrong direction and you are done for Because the key was thrown into the ocean that could only open the locked door behind you
Like hot lava A playground game If you stumble off the side and landed in that hot firey pit of lava you were done for
That ocean where the key was thrown into has turned into a nasty green The waves and seaweed churning under the dark stormy sky This is not a message in a bottle but more of a lost man at sea
Every stepping stone could result in a broken heart A bruise A forgotten friend
One wrong decision could cause a prodigy to die
Like ****** His Mother almost got an abortion Her family told her over and over to just go through with the pregnancy She probably tossed that decision back and forth in her mind But her family won the match
If she had decided to go against her family I wonder where society would be today
Would there be dozens of Einsteins? A million Madonnas? Would there be a cure for all the cancers? For the common cold?
Every judgement is a puzzle piece Every step you take back or turn in the unexpected direction is another step towards your fate
Everything matters If you had gotten one more gallon of milk you wouldn't have run out so you wouldn't have gone to the store and meet your best friend there so you wouldn't be going to that Zumba class
Then you wouldn't have met five of you new best friends and your husband
