WE GO FROM WHERE WE ARE

Life is what it is.
We have to go
from where we are. . .

For, though
we rush to start
from any other where,
we really have no footing there. . .

And so,
that means for us
ahead to skip,
though we may thus
revel
as in a flying bubble,
a thrilling roller coaster bump,
or while speeding as a radar blip,
quite giddy then. . .

at some point,
we’ll be bound to slip. . .
and won’t get very far.

And while it’s great
to navigate
by staring up at stars,
we still will
have to cross the gate
that opens
where we are.
