Filling The Bucket

The old man sitting on the stoop was bent over and lamenting about his life.

I stopped and asked the man what was wrong.

He explained he lost everything that mattered to him and was wrought for what to do.

His family and fortune were gone with one wrong decision.

I asked him again making sure I understood all the consequences,” but what’s really wrong?”

He had no answer so I continued my journey telling him, “It’s going to better tomorrow.”

As I began to go he asked how I knew it was going to better and I answered, “I just know.”
