A life tossed into confusion (poem)

27 Jan

Life never stays the same

A life tossed into confusion

A life tossed into confusion, there’s too much going on!
What was is no more, just where in this world do I belong?
What I knew in my yesterday is not part of today,
The life that was within myself has gone another way.

The outside’s also changing, not all is where it should be,
Quite what will stay and what will go, I have yet to see.
Some things are being changed by others, some are all my own,
Some things won’t change at all, I think they are best left alone.

For now let’s deal with the inner me, find some shape once more,
Or at least hold it all together, not spread around the floor.
I will sit a while, reflect a bit, watch the clouds go by,
Maybe just accept all this, without understanding why.

My life is no longer what I thought life was all about,
But I know with my life, it’s up to me to sort it out.
Whichever way life tosses me, these changes I must face,
Wherever I land in life, I will explore that new place.

Life is neither good or bad, I’m just facing the unknown,
A scary place when you see that the past you have outgrown.
I’ll just let the changes happen, then choose the path to take,
Whatever happens in my life, that choice is mine to make.
