You had plans

expectations

fought to bring them to fruition.

Imagine your surprise

when they were realized,

to find what you’d surmised

to be a paradise, what you fantasized

is actually a ruination

and your frustration forces a

mutation of

your plans.

There is anticipation

in the preparation

equal to arriving

at the destination.

The litany of what could be

is not as important as

what is now.

What was before

is not as important as

what is now.

For now is all

you ever have.

You’ve been waiting,

watching,

wondering,

but now

it’s time to act.

Stop planning,

scheming,

dreaming,

and do.

Face the task.

Make it happen.

Decide as you go along.

It’s time,

now.
