Divide

There’s a divide

Between what I’ve imagined

And what this life has become.

A splinter that has grown into a chasm

As I watch the streams of time

Carve away smooth plans,

And the gravity of earth

Push down both lofty goals

And realized intentions.

I stand on one side of this divide

And wonder if I chose the right path

Curving along these ridges long ago.

And still I imagine

How we might build a bridge

Without falling in and sinking

In the undertow.
