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
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,
for me, for the
when I am ready
I want to say
I want to be
I want
and life smiles
until that very minute
that I need
