BOTH FEET ON THE GAS
(4/3/15)


life
is a conspiracy
of circumstance

so much
is beyond
our control

the most
that we can do
is to place ourselves
into positions
to succeed

then see
what the fates
will allow

preparation
only delivers us
to the front
of the line

whether
or not
the road
is clear
after that
depends upon
a myriad
of unrelated
events

we would
live
in a constant
state of insanity
if we attempted
to predict
them all

we look
to what
we can touch

physically

verbally

electronically

to do
what we can
to best further
our interests

then
all that
remains
is hope

hope
that the last
light
at the bottom
of the hill

turns green
