Sitting Still

Standard

She sat still in the evening

guarded and vulnerable
gazing at the thoughts 
swirling in her mind
the eyes deceiving the actual
physical objects within her view
there she is undecided
what to do, where to go
how she came here

sitting still in the evening

lives lived, travels made
seamlessly give no direction
career transitions
relationship roulette
garners her thoughts

sitting still in the evening

as to how to proceed
nothing is simple
anything ahead
lay unmapped, unguided

sitting still in the evening

motions frozen
for moving forward
questions personal strength

sitting still in the evening

working through fears
extinguishing bad habits

sitting still in the evening

she no longer is

sitting still in the evening
