We all have goals,
We all strive to obtain them
We try our best to stick to the path,
And avoid obstacles at all costs.
But we realize that life isn't always a straight line.
Sometimes it hands us a curveball,
And our direction veers off course.
Once again, we're back at where we started.
And that's okay.
It may not be what we wanted,
And it may not be what we asked for
But we make the best of what we've got.
And try, try again
In these uncertain times,
Self-reflection isn't unheard of;
It's almost like a great pause.
With the world around us slowing to a crawl,
The stress and anxiety are getting to us all.
We find that brief moment of clarity,
A revelation that, maybe, we're not lost after all.
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, I realize that I'm not the only one going through a major shift in life right now. We're all going through this. We will get through this.
