Arlene Corwin writes

Life Gets In The Way

You’ve dreams, ambition, metier;
You earn a living. You’re maturing more and more.
Then, a door shuts down one way or t’other:
What to do? How to react?
How to react and what to do?
Go with the flow, of course.
The course has gone another way.
There you are with handicap, a future past, decisions forced
By destiny or nature or predestination.
Life, real life has found another way to play.

Dreams grounded in illusion, maturation
Taken new direction.
Aspiration grounded in illusion done and finished.
Clear as day, life has gotten in the way to stay
Or not.
