I actually thought I had turned
a corner, with a blinding view
of really what lay ahead.

Life caught me off guard and played tricks on my mind.
If I knew, as someone higher and more powerful knows,
how would I prepare for the
onslaught of the difficult road?
Someone explained it a test.
I prefer to think it is unrest
that exists within. I prefer to ignore,
until it no longer stays hidden
behind the back door.
