It took awhile
Before I realized
My life was out
Of control…
The life I was living
Had lost its zest…
What do you do
When you find
You’ve been
Going along
To get along?
And how do you
Fix such a thing?
Simple answer…
Not so simple
To make it work…
I took responsibility
For my part in
Losing control…
I was not without
A lot of help in
Getting out of sync…
But getting back?
That’s all on me…
A work in progress

      Thank you, Suzanne. I suspect far too many can. Wish it weren’t so, but there are far too many users.
