Plans roll down the slope

haphazardly zigzagging,

pulled by the gravity of the situation

some lie stuck on uncertain tufts of doubts

chewing upon their future

others find themselves in a murky drain

to be washed away without a say

A few evaporate into thin air

never to be spoken of again

unable to withstand the heat

when the lava of Life rears up

tearing fault lines apart into steaming craters

frying ignorance into crisp nuggets of awareness

spewing its compelling wisdom

on the temporary beings playing house

with empty boxes of hope and reason.
