Until I Saw the Light (poem)

Updated on June 4, 2013

I thought I had it all planed out

Until it all just changed.

I thought my love would last forever

Until she left me estranged.


I thought it could all be fixed

Until she said no way.

Still I hoped it could work out

Until she moved away.


I thought a degree was all I need

Until the economy took a dive.

Tried to hold out for a job I want

Until I needed one to survive.


I thought I possessed all the skills

Until I saw what was required.

Was hoping I find that perfect job

Until this all transpired.


I was just about to give up hope

Until I remembered all the good.

I gave up way too easily

Until I finally understood.
