Pendulum Swings

Sometimes, it seems like the universe is against you.
Like the bread always lands butter-side down.
Like what can go wrong has gone wrong
And will go wrong again.

Sometimes, life is beautiful,
And serendipity is your shadow.
The sun shines and the birds sing
And every traffic light you hit glows green.

Truthfully, life is a pendulum.
There are good days and bad days
And boring in-between days.
But it’s all just swing.

So in the end, we must remember this:
The rain falls upon the just and the unjust.
It is no sign of God’s wrath or favor,
No result of blessing or cursing.
It is simply nourishing the earth.
