I Like It

It’s laughable–what I’d

do to avoid starting the

writing process.

I find myself way off

in the far reaches of the


until I come back to my


Empty as old mother

hubbard’s cupboard

now living in a shoe.

When you’re bestowed

a prize, a gift,

you say “Thank You.”

So I’m saying thank you

for the gift of today.

No other day is


But steps in the right

direction were taken

today–a productive

direction–and I’m

grateful I landed here,


It’s like I moved out of

my skin and left my

old self behind.

I don’t ever want to


I like being freed–

it’s kind of scary–

but I like it,
