I am not where I had planned to be


I am not where I had planned to be

I’m now doing what no one expects of me

Don’t want to be judged or ridiculed

I just want to feel excited and amused

Of what I’ve embarked on, what I want to do

And definitely not what I’m expected to

I’ve always been in control

Certain where I’m going

Planning ahead

Confident where I’ll be landing

However now

I’m in unfamiliar territory

Not prepared for this outcome

Not the same old story

BTW, whoever thought I’d been writing poetry for years

Nothing is as it appears

I only started just last month

All unplanned; it was by chance

So if you think you don’t have it,

Who knows, you may be the next poet!
