the future (plans a through z)

the future (plans a through z)

 

these pieces

i don’t fully have control over

 

i know where i’d like for them to go

 

i have plans for me

 

big plans

 

but chances are

it won’t go exactly how i want it

 

it never does

 

but i’ve learned how to roll with the punches

whatever that means

 

i’ve never been punched before

but i doubt i’d feel like rollin’ much afterwards

 

human instinct would have me fight back

it’s only natural

 

self defense mechanisms

safeguards

(i can take a beating)

 

but that would become a bad habit

if i’d fight back

 

last laughs and final says don’t exist because someone will always want to add something

 

it’s no longer a final say

it’s a conversation

with fists

 

so i suppose rollin’ is better than punchin’

 

just roll with it

wherever the pieces may fall

with whatever you have to work with

whatever the outcome

 

it may not fully be on course

the way you planned it out

but you’ll make it work

 

you always do

 

but sometimes it takes a little reminding to remember how truly amazing you can be in a day

 

human potential is measured in strides experienced

which doesn’t always equal out to successes

 

mistakes and failures are a part of this journey

 

they are merely success in a direction that you weren’t expecting

 

always moving forward

because you always do

you champion
