ANOTHER DAY OF SAME
(4/2/18)

we awake

prepare
ourselves
for the routine

no electrical

mechanical

financial

medical

legal disasters
looming

in our
younger years
we would've been
tormented
by the boredom
of it all

there must
be more
to this life

as we age
however
we have learned
the many things
that can go
wrong
at any minute

we are grateful
when room
after room
lights

when the cold
water
turns warm

when
the car starts

when we
start

most of us
are miracles
of mediocrity

when we
accept
this grace
of our lot
in life

we can smile
on our way
to work
