Poem a Day, Day 13

Today's challenge was to write a 'song response' poem. Here's mine.

Concerns of the Day

"Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be."

-Doris Day

The concerns of the day quickly take hold

Becoming concerns for the future

We can only live one day at a time

But we force ourselves to look to the future

Try to forget the past

Try to press on

Daily routines are forgotten to

plan, to

make arrangements, to

wrap yourself in

a better life

a better world


Life has a funny way of taking the reigns

Steering you off course

Sometimes for better

Sometimes for worse

But always


For the way it has to be.

-Justin M. Howe
