577. A Shot At Life


At birth the gun was fired

and I expelled from the comfortable chamber

fated for an unknown bullseye

one I could not perceive 


Through my life I erratically spin 

still not knowing of my final destination 

almost afraid that I have been poorly aimed 

and that I will badly miss where I should be 


I have ploughed through many obstacles 

and hundreds more stand in my projected path 

threatening to deflect my flight

or to halt and absorb completely 


No matter what happens I will fall

when my momentum is no more

hoping to be melted down and recast 

for another shot at life
