In my juggernaut of life
All these forty-five years
I’ve gone a whoops or two
Found the banana peel
And strayed from my line
But in these various detours
I’ve mined diamonds and gold
Found what I would have missed
And when I’ve been
At the bottom of a chasm
Hopeless and despaired
I’ve woken to a new day
And located the sun once again
Every sunrise a beginning
Opportunity to embrace
My earth years
