Never Made – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Chagrin – Word of the Day




Never Made

Best made plans
are never truly planned,
merely imagination applied
in a disorder of events,
taking us to tea parties
and hidden places,
relationships unknown,
and even the journey to self.
The best made plans are
never made,
they are,
the fruit of frustration.

  6. This is soooooo true.
    Best is not to have a fixed plan or over expect anything. Let us enjoy the moment as it comes.

  9. Perhaps I’m reading this differently from others. The notion of a curved ball that comes one’s way is what resonates.
