It is what it is
Despite my wishes for it,
Otherwise.
 
You are who you are
Despite my expectations,
Otherwise.
 
I am who I am
Despite my dreams
And schemes...
Otherwise.
 
Embrace what is
Or live with,
The outcome of...
Otherwise.

(2014)

Just some thoughts about how things are and the pull to wish things, "Otherwise."
