Not Always What It Seems

Not Always What It Seems

You thought life good: things came together,

when all of a sudden there comes a time

they are not what you hoped,

not what they seem.

You thought it would work out;

come together like a sought after dream.

But, whether a hunch, or premonition of sorts,

you’ve come to doubt your luck will hold.

And then it happens: your plans go awry.

There you are, where you hoped not to be,

in the middle of a mess, and you ask ‘Why?’

Was it by choice you wound up here,

or a stroke of bad luck?

You moan and cry.

But, a new day dawns,

 there’s a new sunrise.

So smile,

till your world smiles back.
