There Is Purpose In Stillness

Free Verse

I used to think
that I couldn’t be anything
unless I kept moving
ahead, with no missteps
or re-directions
or detours along the way —
in hindsight,
it was foolish of me
to assume that everything
ought to be smooth-sailing
as quickly as possible
even during times
when I didn’t know
myself at all.
