like fresh wintered snow
weary with other people’s tracks
i search for the tread not yet touched or taken

it is difficult to walk in someone else’s shoes, certainly
and harder still to bring forth the certainty of your own formation

what is true for you will not be true for most, but please,

i beg of you

let it be true anyway

One response to “untitled”

  1. My teacher once told me never to believe something to be true because someone I loved or respected said it, but only to claim truths that resonated within me. He also said once you own a truth, you are then obligated to honor it. There is a lot of freedom in choosing your own truths, and strength in living them. Your words brought that moment back for me.
