Something Lost Makes Way for Some Gains

None of us can ever have it all.
Somewhere we rise, every time we fall.
Life is always just and fair for one and all.
But none of us can ever have it all.

Something lost makes way for some gains,
The one up there deserves no complaints.
Lush green leaves bloom and ultimately fall.
Barren empty trees bring in the snowball.
For every little bad, there’s another good call.
None of us can ever have it all.

Some choices we get while some we select.
For some we are glad, others make us repent.
Yet no moment can ever be a stiffened wall.
Times change and grow, nothing stays small.
None of us can ever have it all.

We open one door closing in a hundred more.
The opened door brings us our gifts in store.
Closed doors contain a lot meant to ignore.
The pandoras box is not what we’re made for.
So stay happy whether you fly or crawl…
Because none of us can ever have it all.
