and I'd do it again
as I took the first step,
full of hope
and memory
there was spring in my feet
and a smile on my lips—
thrilled,
eager to descend to insanity.

I wandered into strange turns,
lost in personification
and nonsense,
alliteration and form,
there was nothing unreachable
nothing so difficult
that I could not attempt it.

I read and wrote—
finding in each new line
a depth to myself
a way to become better.
each challenge
becoming
a new way to think about
writing and the world

and as I make my way
out of the maze I’ve danced,
back toward sanity—
my feet are even lighter,
my smile brighter,
and I’m ready
to start the dance again.
