Life and Change

April 16, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Life is never what you expect, nor especially what you plan.
You can end up in places in which you never began.
Such has been my life, over this past year,
In a new place, with new friends, and in a new career.
The change I did not foresee, nor ever would I have guessed,
Yet the change, out of all possible things, is perhaps the best.
This is a good reminder of my finite perspective,
My best thoughts, on my best day, are at best defective.
And so I am learning that I am not my best guide,
There is another, greater and wiser, in whom I must abide.

Black and White

“How much easier would it be if everything were right or wrong?”
I ask this selfishly, hoping risk did not to life belong.
And try as I might, to fit everything into its place,
In reality such simplicity is simply not the case.
Most decisions are not merely a matter of wrong or right,
Slowly am I learning few things are black and white.
