When Things Don’t Go Your Way

When Things Don’t Go Your Way

The roof leaks 
The back aches,
The skin wrinkles,
and then the leaf blower
during your silent meditation!

Later, someone tailgates you.
Crazed egos start insane wars.
You lose
the argument
a job,
the money
a love.

Your once smooth road
Is littered, broken
by life, The Jackhammer.

Raise the white flag
open your fist 
full of opinions
heart full of hurts
release them on the wind.
Surrender so you can
roll with it, baby.
Let mystery carry you 
away from 
your way, 
a new way, baby.
not your way
not your way.
