My Life in a Ravine
I grabbed my life by the scruff of its neck and shook it. It punched me in the face and knocked me cold.
When I came round my life had gone. I searched the highways and byways, the alleys and parks. I had lost my life, and all because I wanted to take control.
My heart told me I was stupid, my brain agreed.
I found my life in a deep ravine. I promised never again to shake it like a rag doll, but instead to follow its lead and let it wander its course. It didn't even thank me.
