Let life live itself.

The head of a company survived 9/11 because

His son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.

One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.

One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.

One of them
Missed his bus.

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.

Car wouldn’t start.

One couldn’t
Get a taxi.

The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..

whenever I am stuck in traffic,
late for class,
take an extra hour on a test,
step in dog poop,
get bit by an ant...
Or endure all the things I think are 
negative influences on my life...
I take a step back and think,

This is exactly where
I am meant to be.
At this very moment.
