Life: A Poem

Something will change everything, I cry

I am still waiting for my own life as an adventure
Celebrated, experienced
What it looked like in the movies

Life is making other plans
For me, I was ready for my big moment

The Big Moment —
An urban myth

People have a life made up of more than one moment
A collection of a million tiny little moments
Together they make a life —
Much less fabulous than the movies

But this is it
Unfolding gracefully

Daily life —
In our houses, in our beds
In our prayers and secrets —
Is the most precious experience
