Too Close to the Wire

As I continue to navigate through my 32nd year,

I begin to understand

That life is a weaving in between wires




And expectations.

If I am not aware

Of myself

Personal wires tangle

And I am left to work against the friction and resistance.

Or, to untangle a knot.

In public life the outcomes are not better- if I am careless

And so now, when I get those sensations

I step back, so I am not distracted by broken wires’ flailing sparks

Before I electrocute myself.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
