In My Own Time

Perhaps I don’t have to know where I’m going

And for now it is enough that I’m not where I used to be

These growing pains are draining me of all my energy

I know that I am gravitating towards a transformation

And it’s enough that I know, it doesn’t have to be an exhibition.

There’s no point in telling everyone that I’m about to die

When they will witness my rebirth in their own time.

Bring me flowers when I am born anew.

Drown me then with gifts and affection.

For now, you can save it, it’s not necessary.

For now I am enough

Even on days I seem to be walking around aimlessly

Even on days I stop in the middle of the path ahead of me

I am enough.
