As it rolls

There is supposed to be meaning
to everything that happens to us
it sure must be in a foreign tongue
or it mustn't be a good thing to trust

We are supposed to agree on hindsight
smile back on the broken pieces
and see how they still led here
but what if time freezes?

Life is meant to be a book
with many many chapters
while many make good reads
some also end up in tatters

Is that what we must get
that life is an outcome of chance..
uncertainty the only sure thing
and pointless, the best laid plans.

It's my life!

I quit my job , oh brother I did !
The one that sapped all the life outta me,
walked out in the sun like I always wished
without a worry or a penny

Voices of friends lingered from work
doubts, questions, concern for my act
but  boy, I didn't miss staying in the lurk
of pressing issues and facts

A lifestyle bought by dollars
may have been hard to beat
but freedom from the stifling collar
felt like rising up Broadway Street

Behind my gates lay in wait
only a handful of ideas and will
but never had life in its wake
promised this meat in a kill

No lure of success or fear of defeat -
only the lookout for a new path
I drive, I decide who else to seat
and it'll be some journey, no matter what!
