maybe you were right

maybe you were right

maybe you get so used
to feeling trapped that
you don't see a way out, that
when the worst happens,
you stay fairly balanced
because you expected it

you throw away / push away /
give away / let go of /
sully / abandon
that which can lead
to other ways of being
because you no longer believe
things can be different

who stayed?

setting off
and getting off,
who did you say goodbye to?

who said
don't go?

who followed?

who stayed
keeping watch
hoping you'd come back?

you left home
and have been many things
in many places

you stayed alive
even as the journey took from you
everything you thought you knew
about what it means to be alive

how do you keep moving
when the journey stops making sense?

come up for air


imagine unicorns and rainbows
and flowers in bloom


imagine a world full
of butterflies,
bumblebees and hummingbirds


go back to the time
when there was dancing
in the rain


stay there
for as long as you need
