I’ve heard when people plan
I’ve learned that to be true
the past decade of trying to live.
Growing up, everything seemed to be
according to a plan.
Go to school, get a job, and
get an education, it was all
about following the plan.
I went to school where everyone said
I wouldn’t survive high school
and I ended up graduating college.
I dreamed of becoming a successful author.
I still do.
Then something happened along the way,
some blame a leaders competence.
Others blame the work of a God that
apparently has abandoned us.
Why are we so quick to pick blame?
I’m not a religious man but I can say
that I do believe there is a plan.
I don’t believe it because of scriptures
written to keep order or a self-proclaimed
I believe it because of what I’ve seen,
what I’ve experienced and what I’m
continuing to do right now.
I gave up on my dreams and went towards
Security, I felt safe but miserable.
Then I met a friend
who gave me a kick in the ass
when nobody had the balls to do so.
I went back into writing because of him.
He is the reason I believe in
I was meant to give up at first,
I was meant to find him,
And it was his purpose to put me
Back on my path.
There is a plan and while we may not
Agree with it at certain times.
I’ve seen enough to believe that
events happen for a reason.
Believe in the plan.
