another sunny Sunday
washing and other chores
to prepare for the week ahead

routine habits rituals
keep us on the treadmill
duties expectations obligations

life has a monotonic rhythm
most seldom think to vary
or step out from the ‘norm’

on automation we conform
oblivious to our choices
illness or aging raises questions

is this what life’s about
we avoided making choices
well oiled in our rut

not realising there might
be more to life than what
we have blindly done

are you locked into routine
or dare to go against the tide
life is for living not to hide
