Elixir of Existence

What is life but a wondrous alchemy,
A fusion of light and shade, joy and loss?
A potion brewed with care and mystery,
Each ingredient a pathway we must cross.

For some, a vine entwined in wild array,
A labyrinth leading to an unknown end.
For others, a quest to prepare and sway,
Towards a higher realm, where souls ascend.

To comprehend the depths of human heart,
Unlock the secrets of its sacred reign,
Embrace diversity's resplendent art,
We journey, never knowing what we'll gain.

Yet life can also be a cruel, bleak fate,
A voyage marred by sorrow, pain, and strife.
A tempest fierce, relentless in its gait,
A force we can't control or calm in life.

I've witnessed loss, my brother swept away,
A victim of that furious, raging sea.
But even in the darkest night's array,
I find a way to cherish and be free.

For I'm a daughter, sister, aunt, and more,
Part of a tapestry greater than me.
Though storms may rage, I know what lies in store,
Life's precious gift, a symphony to see.

So let the thunder crash and lightning flare,
Let winds of change surge with their potent might.
I stand prepared, unyielding in my dare,
Embracing life's alchemy, a beacon bright.
