The Path – Written Thursday 28th November 2019 (Aged 44)

The Path

i am on that path again
not the cycle path
or the garden path
not the path built with crazy construction
the one with a tentative rope bridge
and a side or order of destruction
but the path,
i integral to my being
and i cannot veer
i have cheered with a hopeful fear
i have run ragged,
the cycle of experience and its baggage
criticism, when relentless,
has never felt like anything less than savage
i am on that path again
and i know it is true
do not be distracted by the view
unfairness and injustice
hits me everytime
but these painful blows are fine
treating people with kindness
will see that path unwind
i am on that path again
