Yesterday, my driver’s side back wheel got sabotaged and blew out while on the highway. Probably just a freak accident, right? Anyhow.. a poem came from this. Surprise, right?
Spoiler alert, I found out once again about the goodness in the hearts of the small town. The folks who helped me and gave me breaks here and there to try to make this bit of misfortune less so was and is enheartening. And… oh, I picked up the pieces quickly and managed to go take 200+ photos. God and small town Indiana was looking out for me. I have a heart filled with gratitude.
But Not Today by Michael Doyle With the simplicity of a stumble I watch as my heart starts to crumble It's clear that I lost my way It doesn't matter; I hope to find it another day But not today; not today Feeling like a dog gone astray All my cards thrown into play A caffeine pick-up and I'm on my way Flat tire on the interstate Man, this day is rolling great With no need for a cop I manage to limp into the truck stop Maybe it's the price of constantly driving Staying alive and simply surviving I had hoped to take photos today The story of my life these days But not today; not today Feeling like a dog gone astray All of my cards thrown into play A caffeine pick-up; tire change and I'm on my way (c) July 12, 2020 Michael Doyle All Rights Reserved
P.S. Not my vehicle, just something I drove past in the drive that gave me pause to count my blessings that it too was not today…
