Preparation

Each day is uncertain
and I pray that I am prepared
when my time comes.

I plan to be here up into my 80s.
I don’t have the final say
but I hope this will stand true
as I have a big task to accomplish.

I start and end my day with prayer.
God is my strength, joy, and peace
in the midst of each storm.
I just couldn’t do it without Him.

Double-Edged Sword

I never did succeed
in fitting in,
no matter how hard I tried.

Though the road is broad and inviting,
open 24/7.

I was never able to fit in
like the amazing puzzle piece
I thought I was meant to be.

I was never the right fit,
even when I met
all of the right criterias

Wasted Fear

You won’t do this.
You won’t do that.
You won’t go there.
You won’t speak up.
You shut down.
You live in a box.
Yet nothing bad happens.
Life continues on.
