Not to Plan

Or, shit happens.

A look at the last twenty-eight years of my life from the perspective of hindsight. Life just doesn’t always go to plan.

Post “I do”, learning you

After birth, slimmer girth

Post graduation, occupation

After number two, teaching to do

Post job losses, find new bosses

After number three, tour Hawaii

Post Island stint, heart broken and bent

After third tour, once again poor

Post ordeal, plan wedding meal

After graduation, new occupation

Post business losses, more new bosses

After relocation, try meditation

Post reunion, consider dissolution

After reflection, angry rejection

Post separation, much celebration

After the past, question what lasts
