Life Lessons

grand canyon

Confidence

ebbs and flows

in waves fueled

by desire, by design,

by détente

 

Backed up against the wall

I reach for it, squeezing

as it slips from my grasp

by configuration, by conception

by necessity

 

Emotions churn

turning situations into

lessons wrought with frustration

and contemplation and intention

and deliberation

 

My plan was designed in a way

I somehow knew never could be

 

It was a case of accepting

this future I was meant to have —

sometimes spent in solitude and

silent happiness

 

Now riding this rising tide,

I am content to navigate each

sweeping swell and stormy surge

by desire, by design

by defined aspiration
