And though I do not know the way,
I step forward – as I always do,
one foot into the new day.

 

They set the stage, built a life;
then let subsequent decades
pick at its seams, tearing them apart.

 

One day you may wake up and wonder,
Am I a dreamer or delusional?
But then, remember: only you are following the narrative.
