I spend a large part of my life mapping it out

Careful planning is something I cannot do without

There are responsibilities, and variables too many to consider before

I take decisions big and small, I rely more and more

On a calendar to ensure smooth passage of days

Even when life derails plans in unexpected ways

I have back-up plans in place to some extent

To cushion the harsh blow of a disastrous event

When things go as planned, I look at life with gratitude

Plan and hope for the best is my attitude


A life carefully planned does get predictable

There are few spontaneous moments that enable

Your breath to be taken away, in pleasant surprise

Such rare moments are the ones that leave me energized

They remind me that once in a while I should leave

Unplanned time in my schedule, just believe

Life would have something interesting for me

That if I’m prepared to be amazed, I would see
