I am not one for straight lines,
or the easy way through.
The path has never been cleared for me.
Instead, I take shortcuts
or the long way around
sometimes, it takes me twice as long.
But I get there.
Sooner sometimes, rather than later.
Perhaps just a little banged up from the trail.
(note to readers, I am just doing this – forcing myself to write, regardless of what comes out, how unpolished, how incoherent and rough — just writing. . . every day for thirty days – that is all).
