crisscrossed (day 61)

this journey of life
has so many turns
i feel piled up
from… lessons learned
like too many blankets
on warm winter night
or road that’s so long
no end is in sight;
yet still i am full
of imperfections
a traveler who
won’t follow directions
i’ve given my love
to those undeserving
but i’d rather love
than be self-serving
so as i embark
upon love’s new quest
i approach unencumbered
my mind is undressed
from the doubts and the shame
of what i have lost
or the dreams i have had
that became… crisscrossed
