The Surprise Game

I woke up today
thinking about life,
and everything
I imagined it could
and couldn’t be…little
did I know that life
was thinking about me
too…only life knew
where I was going
a petulant child, life
would not divulge
it’s secrets…so now
my mission, my
goal and objective
is to flatter, to cajole
to convince life
with smiles and
laughter and giddy
anticipation
that I am ready, I am
willing wanting wearing
my best face…all
toward a tomorrow
that life holds in
careful hands
behind its back,
waiting
for me, for the
minute
when I am ready
I want to say
I want to be
I want
and life smiles
waiting
until that very minute
that I need
