I knew my life about to change;

some things would be left behind.

I packed the suitcases of my brain,

and mused, my life’s about to change.

Girl, it’s time you thought long-range. 

No longer resigned and undermined.

I whispered, “My life will change.

It’s time my values and actions aligned.”

Roadside wildflowers swayed, unconfined.

I told him, “My life’s about to change. 

You catch up fast or be left behind.”
