turning to black


to take a moment

to look upon my life,

of what i’ve achieved,

of what i’ve yet to do.

two steps forward,

three steps back,

but my footsteps

grow larger.

making strides

against the tide

without going under

setbacks i have suffered

at the whims of fate,

but probably less

than those inflicted

by mine own hands.

the dreams in play,

the dreams delayed,

and the dreams best

left forgotten.

add it up –

the gains, the losses

the break-evens,

and i’m probably

still stuck in the red,

but the ledger’s slowly

turning to black.


Day 12
