Been through the terrible twos?
How about adolescence and your teen-age?
Remember entering adulthood?
Ever encounter illness or old age?
In whatever words we choose to describe,
They’re words to categorize.
The next chapter of our life
That we must face and realize.
However, it chooses to appear,
It’s a progression to accept.
Decipher your perspective
And treat them all with respect.
Create your own destiny and shrug away the categorical labels. Life is filled with many chapters to help you grow complete. Call it what you may and take hold of the reigns, only you can decide if misery is abstained.
