Only Then

Perhaps life isn’t so straightforward
and plans change or changed for you
but you’re nudged nonetheless towards
something nameless but necessary
and so you follow, sometimes willingly,
or perhaps not, and if so
life will always return you to this fated place
until all the fruit’s picked
and the field grows fallow and only then can you
leave for other spaces.
