6-Word Poem

I have been listening to the Top 40 radio station that James used to listen to on my way home lately. I would listen to this station more often but I cannot stand one of the morning hosts. Plus, I really don't like listening to people yammer on first thing in the morning so I listen to a station with very little talking and lots of good music.

Anyway, the past couple of days, I have heard a commercial for the morning show and apparently, at some point, they had listeners call in with a 6-word poem to describe their lives. I thought about it, and if I had heard it live and called in, this would be my poem:

"Widowed too young,
what happens now?"

I wonder if I would have made it on the air with that one? But, more importantly, I do wonder what happens now? I am not good with the unknown, and I'm not really a big fan of surprises. I know that I have to keep moving forward, as hard as that can be, but it would really help if I knew what it is I am moving towards.

I know what you mean about not knowing what you are moving toward. I struggle with the unknown future too. However, I think (and I'm trying) to focus more on today. You know all the cliche's (sp?) about "it's the journey, not the destination" and so on. That's the basic idea. I think if we focus too much on what might or might not happen "X" amount of time in the future, we won't appreciate the journey we are on. I heard someone put it like "living in the future" as opposed to living in the here and now. Anyway, that's my rambling at nearly 1:00AM. :)
