week 238 ~ if somehow there can be a choice

with 4 comments

me.238

if somehow there can be a choice
let me know now as I plan my
escape falling from grace will I
ever find reason to rejoice
recognizing my inner voice
in the things I cannot control
as they blossom and become whole
in an instant without knowing
where they’ll go fervently hoping
the real dream isn’t one I stole

    • i’ll ask her when I see her. I wrote the first draft nearly in my sleep and spent a week trying to nudge it toward a narrative, only to backtrack each time to the first draft. This is a slight alteration, once I realized I had to keep the first line and the last 4 words.

  2. Like x 2. “one I stole” Ah, a true concern.

    • Thanks. Yes, it’s hard to pay close enough attention to one’s present to be sure it’s real, not wished-for.
