A mind can play tricks
you may see only what you want
most pain is avoided
unless that is all you know
then it becomes a sadistic comfort
does it have to stay this way?
Good rolls around
you try and hold its existence
quickly it passes though
it was just enough
to see the misfortune you lived.
There is no going back
nor immersion of its surroundings
just the motions guiding the way
pieces, materials, resources, knowledge
solidifying a base
sturdy with positive relationships
the momentum of growth
outlining the course for the future.
