I Walk Sideways


When cracks appear
And in an instant life changes
Everything changes ~

My heart casts about in shadow
And I feel the slow crevices of time
Life begins to whittle me down ~

I walk sideways

I step through an open door
Into a single courtyard
No climbing up or down
Just even keeled ~

On the slope
I now walk sideways

Instead of walking in the center
Where it is most steep
I follow what I can
Right along the edges

I walk to meet
A friend’s heart
To share a moment
In simple laughter
Where we find
Strength for another day ~

I walk sideways
