our path

Unspoiled,
like a child,
both innocent and wild,
she wandered into a dream
where she saw,
a deep, dark jungle.

Around the center
all of humanity stood,
each with machete in hand
and a focused command
that everyone intuitively
understood.

We must
make our own way
to the front and center,
cutting a swath
as we enter,
walk our own path
and however straight or crooked
it may look to be,
follow our unique identity,
composed of our attitudes,
rules, and all the things
we secretly accept
as true, in their totality.
