to start

i am excited for

and in my hurry to start

i ran and skipped and danced

but on my second day

i realized i hadn’t gone very far

i carried this bag

full of words from my past

that weighed and tired me down

and while i rested

i couldn’t help but look

to see what made it so heavy

and hard to pull

it was every word of heartache

from my past and everyday before last

which made me so sad

to think i’d be stuck

or take longer

to move on and forward

my toward

so I dumped them all

out of the bag

and onto my paper

one word

per image

per moment of incident

page 3 is where I leave them
