I have borne weight
like a snow flake
in an avalanche.

Somersaults of
stress over ever-increasing
momentum of reaching
the wrong goals for me
and my type of life
sure take a while
to slow down.

Instead I would like
to make my next choices
like a seed in the soil.

Reaching down and up
at the same time.

Somewhat planted;
somewhat rooted.

This is a slower life,
and it requires a lot
more support.
