Carpe Diem

“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked. ‘Where do you want to go?’ was his response. ‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered. ‘Then,’ said the cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.” ~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland 

With Alice I commiserate

Which way should I proceed

A voice inside vociferates

‘A change is what you need.’

Why is that voice unwilling

To give me a little clue

An idea worh instilling

Is- the point is just to do

There are no guarantees  

All this time spent in my head

Must end… it ages me 

And I can’t change once I’m dead
