Missing pieces

NaPoWriMo Day 1: poem of negation (http://www.napowrimo.net/)
Missing pieces

Gradually you’ll realize
That you can never know
What anyone is thinking
Or if any decision you make
Will work out for the best

Later you won’t understand
How you missed the clues
And didn’t see the bumps
That made you stumble blindly
Once you see them clearly in the light

    I think we all wish we were Sherlock Holmes Liesl (well I know I do!) but there is haunting truth in this, all we can do is take decisions and hope for the best. Lovely piece and I’ll be sure to keep tabs on the rest of your work throughout the month :)
