This Journey Called Life



Frank Sinatra’s “That’s Life” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIiUqfxFttM


That's life(That's life)That's what all the people sayYou're riding high in April, shot down in MayBut I know I'm gonna change that tuneWhen I'm back on top, back on top in June

I said that's life(That's life)And as funny as it may seemSome people get their kicks stomping on a dreamBut I don't let it, let it get me down'Cause this fine old world, it keeps spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a kingI've been up and down and over and out and I know one thingEach time I find myself flat on my faceI pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life(That's life)I tell you, I can't deny itI thought of quitting, baby but my heart just ain't gonna buy itAnd if I didn't think it was worth one single tryI'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a kingI've been up and down and over and out and I know one thingEach time I find myself layin' flat on my faceI just pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life(That's life)That's life and I can't deny itMany times I thought of cutting out but my heart won't buy itBut if there's nothing shaking come this here JulyI'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die, my, my




I'm not a Frank Sinatra fan, but this song, rather the lyrics have rebounded in my head all morning. The truth of the matter is that my life sucks a wet one along with 25 million other Americans (so I don't feel alone). 

Despite my anguish over the past year about my circumstances topped with recently ending a relationship where up was down and down was up, I feel happy.

WHY?

I've not a fucking clue. Yet, I believe it may have something to do with the strength, viability and flexibility of the human spirit.

It could be that I finally gave up and I'm done with fighting. Fighting for my rights, fighting for what's right and fighting to not settle for mediocrity. 

The masses won.
