I prefer to have order in my life-
A set way, a plan, a map of what’s to come.
I’d rather have my problems scheduled and my mishaps neatly arranged
so that when they come I am ready with a plan of action.
But- that is not really living life.
Living life truly, means following a map you cannot see,
Jerking around corners and approaching difficulties with a smile,
Allowing your hands and feet to get messy playing in the puddles of failed organization.
Yeah, life isn’t always neat and pretty,
But learning to embrace the chaos means learning to live happily in the only life you’ve got.
