free verse


I heard it said, in wisdom,

“When you look back, you delve into depression.”

Sure, I have regrets – choices not made.

But it drove me to blackout in busyness.


Then, I heard it said, also in wisdom,

“When you look forward, you’re crippled by anxiety.”

Yes, I give thought to a lot of things.

But when I did not plan for the future, I blacked out all the same.


Later, I heard it said in better terms than these –

As the ivy winds it’s way around the trunk

And strangles the crown of your inheritance,  remember,

“We never graduate navigating the fallenness of this world.”
