Life is a Chain Reaction

Of random events

That causes circumstances that

Changes our direction forward.

It's the stranger that you meet

The new places you visit

The new experiences we greet.

It's the mistakes we take

The crossroads we choose

The dead ends we find.

It's the choices we have

The intent we wish

The surprises we get.


Life is about the chances

The connections

From one thing to another.

Our destiny is ours to own

The path for which we walk

Marks the future that we hold.

You Found Your Way Home ►

So true. We don't choose which way the river flows, but we do choose how to swim in it.

The human spirit is buffeted throughout life which your poem describes so well, but what I like the most is the final stanza which has my fullest approval.
Thank you
