Life Said No

My plans were solid, my resolve rock hard

And life said no

So I rewrote the script and committed to the revised plan, the direction that seemed to be the next right move 

And life said no

I’ve lost count now. I can’t remember how many times I’ve journeyed in good faith, only to find that life said no one more time 

My formerly rigid self has been kneaded until I’m more flesh than bone, more give than take, more release than hold

I plan less and hope more 

And life still says no

The no’s have changed me, flattened me, dismembered and then re-membered me

So now I sit quietly 

Waiting for YES

—————

I’m glad you’re here 💜
