A third of a year gone by again
weeks and months stacked like
trashbags in a landfill
keeping track of landmarks and milestones
requires more and more skill
sadness and regret all around our feet
so we strive to find the higher ground
where joy and hope still meet
but it’s a complicated path
full of wrong turns and dead ends
don’t be afraid to turn around
and if you must, pretend
that you have reached a place
with that perfect view
and with a little luck
the view may just find you
