This Way

Everybody writes about

How they were born

This way

That way

But does anyone ever say

What that way

Really means?

How it stirs my heart to write

And calms my soul to remember

All of the pain and promise made in vain

Opened windows begat shattered dreams

Each one I chased again and again

I don’t have a success story like so many

Nobody’s named a street after me

But there’s a paved roadway in my mind

And I traverse further each day

Discovering what I couldn’t, and that I can

I’m more than a vessel, I’m a cog in a plan

Each breath reminds of the journey taken

Each blink of the eye is confidence brazen

Each death is a light into the why

I was born this way
