Wisdom Changed the Game

I am the pin-pong ball of my life
From one extreme to the other
I fly the gap
Sometimes grazing
And others slapping
Directly into the net
Once upon a time
Independent and sure
Purposeful and aimed
For success and living
To win the game
Before I understood
The playing field
Knew all
The strategies at play
Contemporary woman
Heading for victory
Whatever it was exactly
That really meant
Now
With wisdom and experience
Discovering the intricacies
Of the match
And the depths of this player
Her strengths and lessons
And the purpose of the tournament
