Expectations high
future in mind’s eye
plans instigated
turn out ill-fated
best laid plans awry.

Dreams inhibited
stress exhibited
a brainstorming team
contingencies gleam
loss prohibited.

Contingency mode
convoluted road
destination same
without blame or shame
progress sure but slowed.

Highways smooth and straight
speed on automate
improbable hope
optimistic scope
journey etched in fate.

Life throws us a turn
 thrusts lessons to learn
experience gained
albeit constrained
point of no return.
