don't forget this isn't about yourself

write you way
out of solid
and into fluid

make a path
carrying the stones
you leave behind in cairns

hike up the mountain
until you get to the top
to find the big picture

and then carry the picture
inside your head     keep going
don't forget this isn't about yourself

trust the words
that come flying like bees
on the meadow making honey out of work

 a life is for work
and discovery    take what you learn
and fertilise the world with your ideas

turn away from the sad leftover pieces
of the sterile past       keep going
don't forget this isn't about yourself
