Music Prompt # 70 “That’s The Way It Is” – Celine Dion

I can see what you are going through
Love is tough at times, we are blue
All emotions, we write haiku
Sometimes we have to say adieu
We accept, that’s the way it is
Sometimes we miss, at times there’s bliss

Love’s going to conquer them all
Either we brawl for it or bawl
We can stand tall, otherwise fall
Whatever we do, it’s our call
Try harder, it’s an uphill climb
It’s a lesson of a lifetime

So don’t surrender, we can win
We can only say we have been
If it doesn’t work, we begin
The next challenge, calling our jinn
Keep going, believe in ourselves
Plus all the books in our shelves*

The syllable count is 8 per line in iambic tetrameter and the rhyme scheme is aaaabb ccccdd eeeeff and so on. “La” is Laura Lamarca’s signature and “Charta” in Latin, simply means “poem”.
