My ABCs

Always searching
Breathing~-to~-her~-own~-rhythm~-
Creating a way of thought

Directing her existence
Entering a possibility maze
Following no path-~~_creating one~-~--

Galloping~~~~strolling----whichever
Hating……to……walk………

Independent thinker
Just following the mind
Keenly aware

Laughing in hushed whispers
Mourning in blood-bathed gaiety
Never losing sight of self
Or
Proving anything

Quiet entity all the while
Rewarded by years of
Skipping letters and lines

Uncaring of expectations
Voraciously curious
Worse than the dead cat

Xenophobic never
Yet always
Zealous for a lifestyle apart

I can attest that the poem captures in a dancing word picture a unique individual, its author.
