from my past, from my problems,

The Best Laid Plans

Best laid plans often lie in wait,
only to find a sudden goodbye.
Forcing them to cease and desist,
before they chanced to go awry.

Spectacular feats never to be seen.
Letters written never sent nor read.
Artists who never made their mark.
Bleeding hearts that never bled.

Lives that could have chanced to change
remain grounded like windless kites.
Oh, what pray tell might have become
had only that plan took flight?
