Ready

I believe I must be prepared.

Ready is where I begin.

The Law of Unintended

Consequences gives me pause

and makes my response measured.

Accommodation is needed,

cooperation is wanted,

readiness is being open.

The plan is not predestined,

I realize “Yes” affirms,

I validate “No” denies.

Ready prepares the way,

willing supports the choice,

able connects the dots.

With confidence I say,

“I am ready.”

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
