Lenten Meditation: Reinvention

At one age It seems as if life is going Firmly in a certain direction And you head that way Chugging along at full speed But then Things change Sharply And after a time set adrift In a place that's unfamiliar And completely unknown From where you thought From where you planned on being Stunned, wondering what happened Some people in this place Break down completely Pining away for the life They feel is due to them They feel should be theirs Some people though Go through a period Of introspection And experience A type of reinvention Where they pick themselves up And rebuild their lives With what they've been given With what they have in-hand And are surprised to see They are now in a better place Than they would have been Before the life-altering change
