Ode to Living Each Day As It Comes

Not so long ago or very far away
I used to plan and peck and analyze
every single day

My life was not spontaneous
My life had little joy
But I believe that this all changed
around the time I had a little boy

For then life came much faster
I had not time to plan
I had to get used to
taking things at hand

And then there came another
and with chaos I've been hit
I admit at times
I've raged and thrown a fit
at the grand injustice
of never having things go my way
but lately I have realized
that I alone cannot shape my day

Each day is a present
I can open and behold
I sit back and let it ride
and try not to fit into a mold
of what I think is perfect
or what I think is right
My goal now is just to be
and sleep well throughout the night


  1. That's awesome, Liz! It's a scary thought for us Virgos to be out of control...but it's a lesson we must learn. :)
