    It is synronicity/serendepity that I read this poem today. Today, I was wondering how it would be to feel wise after going through life with ups and downs. I know conceptualty, it is to remind kind/graceful/smiling/accepting instead of feeling cynical and bitter. This poem does a great job in showing the positive and wise emotions that come out of setbacks. I know life has setbacks, and if we can have positive emotions that arise instead of negative, its a much better option.
