The Everyday Experiment

Chalk on the board; theories in my head,
I once thought this the very stuff of life.
Where the superfluous could fade away
Till the world drew in around me like a dried prune
And I realised:
Life is the ebb and flow,
Life is the everyday experiment,
Trial and error; triumph and tragedy.
Never again will you find me looking for life in an equation,
But in the thick of it:
Sometimes confused,
Often bewildered trying to figure it out,
But struggling through one step at a time,
And undeniably alive.

    Each day is new and brings something different. Sometimes we forget that and slip into routine, thinking there is no change. That’s not true, each day, age increases and experience builds up, mindset evolves slowly but surely.

    True – change is an inevitable part of life! That randomness, buzz and variety bring energy into life:)
