A better question

Instead of what is one’s purpose, the better question is what abilities of mine can put cash in my pocket and/or contribute to the greater good?

I’m not sure why, but this kept me awake a bit last night. We can get tripped up by believing popular questions deserve answers.

This life

Light gray fog wraps
Car in cocoon
Driver hits brakes
And then sits still

Where could he run
Or where to drive
Neither forward
Or back again

Suspended time
How or why spared
Gripping the wheel
Braced for impact
