THE GRAY SKY

The sky is gray today.

 

If I had my way

it wouldn’t be.

 

It’s just one thing

amongst many

that doesn’t respond to my desires.

 

I have little say

over most things that are

and most things that will be.

 

But confined as I am

I find that

life is still pretty good.

 

I am free to be me

and that matters

here and there —

and though not everywhere

it is enough.

 

I will let the gray sky be

and do what I have to do

beneath its gloom.
