Here’s a story that needs retelling,
it’s inside of you.
It’s not a story to be made in a book,
This is the story you forget to tell yourself
when you’re struggling with circumstances you believe
are beyond your control.
The story is that there is another way;
your response—and continued creative responses,
is how you make circumstances
No one is going to change the thing.
It has to be you.
You don’t need support from anyone,
You just must resist the bonds that you’ve shackled yourself
with because you agreed to perform the role that your relationship
seems to demand,
limiting the parameters of your potential.
The boundaries of your capability.
The barrier, the chasm, the seemingly endless void
and the thing that needs
the plans you ALREADY made
and that appear to be set in stone.
I experience a loss every single day because of something I did
in the past.
And I have come to something I understand is acceptance.
it’s still not fair
for it to go on like this forever…
me waiting for the circumstance to change.
So let’s hear it for walking out the door
with the blazing neon sign that reads:
“you are stuck”
–run out of there without warning
