Poem #121

It’s a long road and you think it’s straight
but your eyes can’t even begin to see the curves
and many turns.
Somewhere along the way you stumble
or stop to take a break. You turn around and
painfully whisper to yourself: “I got lost. Shit, not this again.”
You live trying to break the loop, hoping you’ll
find the breaking point before you reach your own.

  1. You must remember to tell yourself “lost” is evidence of progress otherwise you would recognize your surroundings because you haven’t made any advancement, so don’t be mislead by a fear that seeks to keep you narrowly focused on only it…going nowhere.

    Trust in those who trust in your ability to handle the road like a veteran, after all it isn’t the first time you’ve been out on life’s fringes, so grit your teeth when you can’t smile and know you are not really- alone.
