not my normal mode of thinking
but, after thinking about it for a few days, I think I may see "their point"
to live an authentic life, to not run from my "truth", to not fear love or "exposure"
to stand up to whatever comes -- this, at times, can be a daunting task
and baby steps moving forward, more and more I "embrace" that this "path"
is as it "should be" -- and I try to put my ego aside
and live in harmony with all "that is"
there are no maps, few guides and I have crushed many a toe walking in the dark
but, no matter, I keep moving forward, broken toes and all
I learn as I go
