My Poem “Make your own bed”

Some things in life will
always be out of our control,
some things in life will
always be out of our reach -
but some things in life
are completely ours to do
with what we will...
some things in life will
always be a dream to aspire to
and to be inspired by,
some things in life
will always be as ephemeral
as a cloud in the sky -
but some things in life
can open both doors and windows
within us and around us that can
make us literally leap on through
to a world of something
that once seemed incredible and unobtainable...
some things in life are just meant to happen,
some things in life are just meant to be,
some things in life are meant to have a plan -
but there are some things in life
that are a matter of we shall see,
because every day we all interact with
a world of people and things
of infinite complexity and often times
comforting predictability...
some things in life we need to know
everything about and some things
we can comfortably live in the dark about
and in a state of deniability...
some things in life we can leave for others to do,
and there some things in life
that we cannot say -
but there are times when we must
do some things, and there are times
when some things have to be said...
sometimes you have to clean up
the mess you have made,
sometimes you have to do your best
at setting things right with people -
including long lost family and friends;
but no matter what has been said
and no matter what has been done,
as long as each of us realize that
though there are times when we can leave
some things and some people alone
to eventually become what and who
they are supposed to be,
there will always be a time when
each and every one of us have
to make our own bed because
no one else can do it for us.
