Whatever You Want It To


What does it mean?
Is it a sign
When systems fail,
Or stars align?
The sudden death,
The accident,
Is it bad luck,
Or heaven sent?

The unexpected
Bills come due;
You saved for one,
But pay for two.
Is life unfair?
Are you to blame?
Or is it just
A cosmic game?

What does it mean?
Is it a sign?
Are omens good?
Is chance benign?
Is meaning set
Before the storm?
Do cautions lurk
In random forms?

The friend you meet,
The butterfly,
The rainbow stretched
Across the sky–
Is it a sign?
What does it mean?
Is life what is,
Or what’s unseen?
