day 240

the demands of life
anchor us in separate waters
we tow their weight
for the needs of others
as well as our own.
commitments cling like barnacles,
encrusting us with their importance
until we have forgotten why
we took down our sails,
turned away from the joy of the wind
and remained stuck
in the mud of responsibility.
