Lost in Transition
"Disorder increases with time, because we measure time in the direction in which disorder increases." ~~ Stephen William Hawking~~
I am here, you say. But am I, really?
I thought then, “ 'there', is where I want to be....”
Didn't think, going away would entail letting go;
I let go.
I let go of what I had,
Of what I knew;
That which allowed me the capacity for 'dreams',
Thinking, 'there'- 'here'- I would find what I seek.
Now I see, in leaving I have left behind
All, for what I'll be yearning.
But 'here' I am, come from 'there'!
And the fading trails of a lingering wish;
That 'here' wasn't a lifetime removed from 'there'
