The way things come full circle,
the irony of this tragedy,
forces me to laugh
through my tears.

The universe is saying,
You are not in control
and never will be

The truth is you're right
and I surrender to you,
"You win, I lose"

I bow down to you;
Now please wait a moment
before your next surprise.

Let me finish mourning
without also having to
marvel at the twists

life enjoys throwing at me
so it can laugh as I trip
and fall flat on my face.

Your humiliation, my amusement
