HOUR THIRTEEN ~ Every Time I’ve Left



every time I’ve left

I was right to do so


maybe not right in my words

my thoughts or my deeds


maybe torn up, shredded

on expectations and disappointment


maybe savage and ferocious

lashing out in my pain


but I know something now that I didn’t know then

I needed every wrong turn, every misguided step

to find the places where my joy was real


and when I was finally there, in a place where I was happy

I knew I was always going to make the next right move

even when everything else around me was wrong


because that’s all I’d ever done

just like every time I’ve ever left

so that someday, I could arrive
