You can wander in to most anything 
that isn’t worth anything, but rarely
do you aimlessly bump into teachable moments
you can latch on to and shake until a significant 
morsel of truth topples into your lap,
a windfall of endurance, a golden apple of opportunity 
waiting to crunch beneath your pearly whites
while life’s lessons dribble sweetly down your cheek 
as the world burns to a valley of ashes around you.
