Assumptions are the short cuts I made to focus my ambition
Fed by what I was told,
And never considering the motivation of the people who knew best.
In this holding pattern of a year,
I keep asking myself, why not try?
And, I notice that every single one of the things I couldn’t do,
Because bodies like mine can’t,
Everything on that list is being done, and done better.
Because I took the time to try
And the time to practice paying attention.
My ambition has grown in 2020
I don’t have to be alone
