Poem: Toward – 12/11/20

Another chapter,
yet one and the same?
Different rules, different circumstances,
differing frames.

It feels odd to walk a path
in an alternate manner,
I’m here and now,
watch me flower.

The sadness is gone,
but confusion can reign,
I will not allow it,
I hear someone cautiously call my name.

Because there are set parameters,
at least they exist in my mind,
I must be careful to let them
remain in place,
lest they fuel like petrol on flame in time.

I’m walking forward,
I can develop on my own,
I must continue this growth because
it’s important to set in stone.

I am finding a path again,
I am moving, moving onward,
and if those in my life would like
to join me,
then onward,
to the goals,
