Sensing the Darkness

Moving too fast sometimes
Running from something
Ignoring the path between
Start and finish —

But there is something in the back
That can’t be ignored:

Standing still
Allowing yourself a pause
To look back
Not just over your shoulder:

Turn around
Face it
What’s coming for you
Stand in its way
Offer reflection
Talk and
Similarities —

Facing what’s different
Try to understand
Offer a shared path
But if it’s too dark:

Let it pass.
