After the crash came a changed perspective, a different outlook on what is life.

      After the Crash


We crashed on the beach
The plane is a wrack

All there is – is water and sand

Sand and water, water and sand –


Where in this picture do I stand?

Where do I fit

How do I blend

Into this tide

That quickly expands?


Yesterday I knew

Where I was going

What I was to do

Today is different


I do not know

What awaits me now

What I am to do

Thank God we are sound


Thank God we are safe

Does anything else matter?

Has anything changed?

 The only change is


I now realize

That all is uncertain!

…All is as was…

Only I have changed

Denise, I have come to realise that the only one sure thing is change, you have captured the essence of this very well. You will find your way because hope floats :)
