Plan B by J. Perry Alldredge
Poem by J. Perry Alldredge
It wasnt deliberate my straying from the norm,
a call from my soul was leading me.
So the easier life requiring me to conform,
I rejected in favor of Plan B.
Smiling approval felt right for a while
then a sense of self-betrayal began to grow.
Until things that kept me from a heartfelt smile
were identified and finally let go.
In Plan B you have to face each day
knowing theres no real tried and true.
Accepting that we are not here to stay
but simply passing through.
Youll find youve become aware.
Of the way life takes you effortlessly,
toward people who honestly care.
Fellow travelers with their lessons to teach,
prepare you for your role.
Of helping others find the courage to reach
and learn whats contained in their soul.
Developing your spirit as woman or man
you drop off the need for success.
You soon open up to the Creators plan,
in thanksgiving for all you possess.
like feeling purpose with each step you to take.
Its where your finest moments are stored
along with a few heartaches.
Im not on the planet to do any recruiting,
but I learned after a while,
to discourage any words that were self-deluding,
because they champion only one lifestyle.
And draw strength even in your meekness,
