Change Your Story

I walked
for so very long

going – I thought
in the right direction

but instead
I ended up stumbling perilous roads
falling
and getting up
going seemed a better choice than staying down

I got lost – more than once
but I didn’t stop
I kept walking

I followed trails made by others
leading me where they were going
some as lost as I

I stepped off
the path that wasn’t mine

Above,
a blackbird,
with battered wings flew
gracefully
gliding through sky

in the stillness
the blackbird’s wings
whispered

Tears in my eyes
I heard the call
my guiding light
deeply rooted within
to run with the wind
to fly with the blackbird
to create my trail
