Literature Text

There will never be a straight path to where you want to go.

We meander and wade through the soundtrack of our lives

and still,

we might never get there.


I see you twisting your body round the desk as you,

write this, write me, write them away.


How many seconds did you

pause

before considering your underlying regret?


Go straight, turn left and left again and still,

you might never get there.

What tethers us to this spot?

What unknowns have we buried, have we uncovered?


Today, I read that two scientists found fossils of a giant carnivore

and I wondered at their bones.

Did they rest easy?

Did they sprint?

Did they get to where they needed to go?


I give up too easily and talk too much to stay here.

So i turn round, head back and decided that

right here and now,

is where I needed to be.

Sometimes we are stuck in motion even though we're moving
Sometimes we pause to wonder about it
Sometimes we just let it slip into our subconsciousness
I realise now that it is okay to remain as is, here

I love the idea of our winding, individual travels through life being all for the best in the end. Nice! 

Congrats on the DD!
