A world of possibilities lies before me
Counting hours, minutes, seconds
Life churns on one step at a time.
Everything is imagined and created
for a tomorrow unknown to me
A place that: will be.
I lie awake wondering at the life
that seems so long ago, almost a dream
and everything it taught me
Narrowing pathways lie ahead
waiting for me to decide my fate
Every step a turn, a mistake, a victory.
I do wonder at all that lies ahead.
All that will be.
That could be.
