And just for thought...
There are times when a direction is given,
When something seems like the appropriate path
Only to realize it's not the right road
But you keep going because of this or that.
Then you find yourself knee deep,
Knee deep in a sand pit you never meant to step in.
So what do you do?
How do you readjust? And I don't know.
I think about the butterfly nets
And the bread crumbs I've left along my way.
I think about the demons that still chase,
The tiny dark pieces that I can't let go of
And then I remember a smile that he gave me,
The little moments when I knew it all
Without the doubts that now seem to pile in pockets.
I go forward with good intentions.
I go forth with kindness and gratitude,
Knowing these two things will always hold these dreams back in some way.
So what do I do now that I stand here?
When the only place I want to be is lost in between these lines?
I keep going, throwing my breadcrumbs,
Hoping I can find my way back.
I stray and I sink and, yes, I fail.
I suppose I have to find peace with that
Because these sand pits have a way of appearing out of nowhere regardless if it's the right road or not.
I know where I come from,
Know where I want to go.
It's the parts in between I seem to get stuck in.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
