456 – Life

You knew
When the journey started
It wouldn’t be
A smooth ride.

Rough seas
And dead calm
Are just sides
Of the same coin.

In the end
It’s all a toss,
Heads or tails
Forever flipping.

Equanimity
Is just a fancy word
For taking things
The way they come.

Stay the course,
Keep your north,
Take deep breaths,
Move on.
