nearly done
with my first
sixty-one years;
i wish i knew
what the hell
i should do
with the rest
of my life.
or the next four days,
for that matter.
most of those
sixty-one years
have been spent
lost & lonely;
that much
i have learned.
i am a damaged person,
and becoming whole
is going to take
a very long time.
sixty-one years
is a lot to repair.
but there is today:
one step forward,
that’s all i need do.
tomorrow,
another step.

Annie said,
bird by bird,
and at last
i understand.
