Just Where You Belong

Funny thing about life is we have a choice of going with the flow or pedaling as fast as our hamster wheel allows us to spin and often times regardless of effort or lack of effort, we end up just precisely where we belong…

Just Where You Belong
by Michael Doyle

You can never know
What kind of day you'll get
But it's always on with the show
No matter how far off script

Each day calls for flexibility
At least to your best
Running at full speed's capability
We'll pass life's test

If we give certainty a rest
And learn to let things go
Probably felt less than best
By some at least, it will still flow

After all, some of the best I've found
Were found while being lost
Chasing an ease of circles around
And somehow, gaining more than it has lost

There's a comfort in being okay
However things might turn out
The direction is still forward day after day
And it's better than duking it out

With the variables out of control
Which so many choices really are
And while that's troubling for many a soul
You'll find it's reasons run far

If as you travel life's road
You let the wheels take you along
Letting your journey gently unfold
You'll find yourself just where you belong
