Vagari #AtoZChallenge #NaPoWriMo

I always had a plan,

For what I wanted to do.

And lived every moment,

Making sure that I was on track.

But then one day,

Life threw me off track,

Nothing went according to my grand plan.

And then I felt lost,

For I knew not how to live,

Without a plan. 

I’d forgotten how it felt,

To live one day at a time.

The little joys that had come my way,

Passed by me unnoticed.

For I was too busy sticking to the plan,

As life went by.

And as I began to learn to live again,

I realized it is okay,

To take things slow and,

To not have a plan.

It was also okay to have one.

But what wasn’t okay,

Was to not improvise,

Based on what life had to offer. 

It is okay to have a plan in life,

And to stay on track.

But sometimes it is okay,

To just wander through life.


Vagari: to wander, roam

Language : Latin


I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge and the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) . I’m trying to weave poems around unusual words or words from other languages that are just beautiful.
