In, we all go, walking down a path we've trod before
Slowly, sullen, quiet, morose
Out, we all go, returning to the space that is familiar
Patterns repeat, infinite hallways
Paths return, the repetition provides peace
Comfort, hearth, heart, home
Off, we go, running in a direction unknown
Curious, scared, courageous, quiet
Pausing, to sit between the shades of grey
Listening for the next step.
We feel pain, we cause pain
We wander and we dictate
Confusion, frustration, enlightenment
Our sameness make us more more congenial to this story, but it is in contradiction that we find our truest selves.
