Echoes…

yesterday came knocking today;
it came with its echoes of fears,
in the voice of mama,
saying child ‘go not there’
the trees your grandmother climbed,
were not so difficult for me…

several steps removed,
i watched on impassioned.

i did try,

try very hard…

echoes of dismissals…
Voices in my head…
whispering pitfalls and shortcomings…
strokes i took overtime.

several steps removed,
i watched on angry.

and then the final straw landed!
on the lanes:
fast
slower
normal
paused…

several steps removed,
I watch so furious am red!

Oh this madness!
I choose to turn you off…
