Life Puzzle

You see that pebble?
You get closer and it's an egg.
You see that puddle?
You jump over it
end up in it
nearly drowns.
Who woulda thought
it was a river?
the pieces never fit together at they promised.
Behind every shadow another emerges
to keep you on your toe
or knock you over
like a tornado 
monstrous and menacing:
a breeze gentle and refreshing.
The things you see
never see you
as you see them.
Monsters become people
the monster's inside you.
The puzzle is scrambles
because you are scrambled.
Each piece becomes you or will undo you.
whether they fall into place or not
depends on how clear your vision is.
