Your Glass

Is it half...full
Or are you not staring at it in useless ponder and drinking from it?
If you count your blessings..instead of counting your problems you tip the pitcher and have more water
More to drink

But if you count your curses
You worry about whether there will be enough in your you only...sip.....

So your glass sits..and you stare
And what's inside evaporated slowly

Soon..all we have is dusty glasses on a shelf that once held something

Keep refilling your glass because the pitcher never runs dry
And drink like no tomorrow pilgrim
Because there is no reason to go thirsty

Some wine
Some water
Some vinegar

But it's always full if you want it to be.
Your life is what you make of it
Learn to fill that pitcher so that you need a bigger one

That way..while on the Way. you will be able to fill it more
More life
More experience
More zest

Off you go!
