When Plans Go Awry

rather than a fierce grimace,

choosing the middle path,

Not furious screaming at top of lungs,

chuckling inwards at life’s absurdity.

flowing with the rapids,

instead of against,

as something greater than I:

laughed at my plans.

not in cruelty but rather I have something else,

just wait for it…

just wait for it…

just wait for it…

God’s punchline at the joke of our hubris,

when we don’t see;

deeper meanings,

when plans go awry.

  1. Hubris equals humourous events, or a rather large downfall depending on who is in the situation. I prefer seeing the humour as good moments come out of it when things don’t go according to plan. Maybe God intended the detour all along. 🙂
