long enough

I’ve lived long enough
to remember long ago
finding myself left with
flashes and fragments,
whispers and scraps
that spar for dominance
while being shaped and shared
to become the story, my story
in the way I choose
at the time I choose
with those I choose
until I can choose, 
no more

How I plan to spend Spring Break

Read a couple of books that will alter my life arc
Write the great American novel
Make connections to restore long fractured relationships
Lose weight

Spend soul feeding time with family and friends
Take long walks
Wash and wax my car
Maintain my weight

Binge watch mindless TV
Get my hair cut
Not give up on the Mariners
Not gain any weight

Alternate ending:
Remember to take my daily meds
Sleep without an alarm
Finish the damn taxes
Not gain too much weight
