Ask Me Now

                                                                                                                                           

If you asked me now

my answer might be different.

So sure to be

an uncertain future.

Whatever I knew then,

I have discarded now.

Ask me again

and I may have changed.

                                                                                                                                           

Thought I had

it all figured out.

Thought I could

do what I want.

The only thing I didn’t count on

was living

long enough

t o meet you.

                                                                                                                                           

Oh, God;

my friend,

you are a crafty hunter.

You set your wire snares

in places I must tread.

I’m caught unaware,

thinking I’m

in control and striving

and then I see you,

or more importantly,

your machinations.

                                                                                                                                           

I laugh

at myself

for not realizing this

so long ago.

Yes, if you asked me now

my answer would be different.
