I've been thinking a bit about a period of time in my life that I simply didn't enjoy.
I suppose that I have been thinking about it because I'm extremely thankful that I'm not forcing myself to be there any longer.
Here's a work of mine from that time. I've thought some of writing a companion piece that has a more positive spin from the "alterations" - we'll see.
a looming haze hovers
years in the making,
and I sit here
not knowing how or
in what way
I should prepare...
I can't, I won't

It's a struggle to not slide backwards at times. The reality though, is that we are all individual authors and we truly do get to decide our destiny; it's not haphazard.
