No Resolution

The chant doesn’t resolve
Nor the song
They fade away
They end
On a half-tone
On an unfinished phrase

And today my life feels like that
Half finished
Between this and that
Not at the beginning
Nor at the end
But somewhere in between

And it isn’t really clear
That I will ever find that end
That resolution
And that makes me sad

Because I am trained
To plan
To achieve
To make goals and meet them
To do more

But, I am advised
Life is not about
The things you check off a list
But more about
The relationships you build along the way.

How to put that on my To-Do List?
