The Unexpected

Sometimes,

when we get into our heads that we want something,

we will not let it go.

We plan,

and plot,

and manipulate

so that what we want will come true.

People tell us that we’re crazy,

but we move forward with our plan anyway.

But, what if after all of those risks,

and all of those steps that it took to get to the place that we thought we wanted to go,

we realize that it’s not actually where we want to be?

It’s not what we expected,

and we can’t quite comprehend what to do next

after giving up so much

and walking so many miles to get there.
