She had ambition.

She had a dream.

She had focus.

She was going to make it

so it would seem.


She had to prove

she could do it.

Her talent stood behind her.

Her work would take her there.

She didn’t slack a bit.


But life has a way

of changing a best-laid plan.

A road block comes

causing a detour

altering what it can.


And now a new road.

She is living downstream

of all her goals.

Moving past her life

of a broken dream.
