getting back on your feet
another first night out
a series of dates
that stop & start over a lifetime
some of them shorter
and some longer
most of them likely
the angle of the sun
doesn’t scare me
but unlike the drama of the moon
any & all changes are
[if I think about it for far too long
I gradually become someone else]
life is a series of choices
more often than not
leaving you without options
but it’s those times
that they do
that will ultimately define you

Love this poem, John, especially the second verse.
Thanks so very much, Lauren! Hope all is well & good with you & yours.
This was very meaningful. The last stanza is so true. The choice we make may define our career or our life.
Indeed, Padmini. Thanks so much for stopping by tonight and sharing your thoughts.
