New Years Day 2019

~ 1119 ~

.

We spend our entire lives

hiding

from the fact that we

are going to die.

Yet we spend our entire lives

just wanting

to get through it

without really knowing why.

Somewhere in the middle

life meets

with its own agenda

and its own plans.

It’s a wonder anyone survives.

It’s a miracle anyone understands.

We look out on the horizon

that is the new year,

hoping we will wisen

and we will have more reason

for cheer

We’re here in this now

looking through the lens

of perception,

trying to make guesses

at the future and the

next best direction.

Our crystal ball

doesn’t always see all

of the clarity

amidst messes and disparity

in our fits

and our transgressions.

But, we can meet that vision halfway

by seeking as we should seek,

minute by unforgiving minute, hour by powerful hour, and week by working week.

About SIDEWAYS EIGHT

Being heard, stirred, and perhaps cured by life's many hidden images and the written-spoken word.
