81 – Little Surprises

Some days
I pat life on the shoulder

I say
“Thanks for being a soldier”

For the
Little bank account surprises

And for
Reminding me that I am alive

Because I
Feel like sometimes I just get by

On scraps
Of good luck and good intentions

Which is
Fine but it is also terrifying

When I
Can’t prepare for whatever’s coming

That’s when
My head starts running in circles

What is
The worst that could happen

The best
In all the ways I didn’t expect

It’s a
Fine line on the edge of the edge

From one
Adventure right on to the next
