The day begins with a rising sun

A robust stretch

A cup of hot coffee or tea

And a hug from loved ones

The front door opens

There’s a whiff of fresh clean air

The ride on the train suddenly gets complicated

The first train is over crowded

No more passengers allowed to board

The second train is suffering electrical problems

The third train is running express stopping three stops past my own

Suddenly the voice over the loudspeaker says

There’s been a computer malfunction

Busses will be replacing train service for the rest of the day

Finally arriving to work two hours late

To a sign on the door stating closure for the day

Due to a flooding and a power outage

Dreading the potential busing nightmare

The hour and a half walk in front of me seems quick welcoming

But streets closures due to road work doubles my trip

The sight of my front door ahead of me

Never felt so good

Until the realization hits me that my purse is missing

I can’t even get in my front door

Thank goodness for the basement window I just fit through

My only solace once I fall into my favorite chair

Is the two hours left of silence before my family

All walk through the front door

I can only ask

Why must life be so complicated?

Some days definitely need a reset button
