It Is What It Is


It Is What It Is
Dr. James E. Martin
©January, 2012

The day will be
What it will be.
The outcome will 
Depend on me.

I can make it
All okay.
Or I can wish
It would go away.

Tomorrow will come,
Or maybe not.
The purpose of this
I plum forgot.

    Hi, beautiful poem you have going here. You’ve captured the essence of life very well - unforeseen events, flexibilities, accidents and diversion. Wellpenned. I’m certainly looking forward to read more of your work. Vicky.
