First, I say

I will

And then, I say

I won’t


Yes, sometimes

I am a bundle of contradictions

First, I think it is this way

Then, I think it is that


I say yes

And then I say no

Gathered into a bundle

Tied with a bow


Life is like that

So much is offered

We agree

…With careful consideration

Maybe not


What road to choose

The road least taken

Or the road

Worn and old


So many decisions

Never knowing

What is right

What is wrong

  1. Your poem moved me to look up this Emerson quote; “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.” Yes?

    1. Sherry I just read some stories about the whale and her dead baby. Oh how sad, or does it reflect our own grief, over the ten thousand things, that are beyond our control.
