Sense of Direction

I am a bug,

small and some-what strapped down
on a spider’s web
But I escape

ready to find,
safety.
But, there’s east, there’s west, there’s up, there’s down,

there is right or left, north or south:
every way that I could go,

every way that I could go.

I am an artist

with a furrowed brow,


a blank canvass
prepared to be painted.

But first--- a focal point
What is most important,

that all else leads up to?
Yes, there’s east, there’s west, there’s up, there’s down,

there is right or left, north or south:
everything that I could choose

everything that I could choose

I am on a path,
curved yet clear
sweet spring melodies fill the air

I could deviate,


I could,



I could,




I could!
Missing opportunities could kill me,

but taking them could do the same.
I have found the way

in which I must go.
In time, I’ll wander, through snowfall,

returning to my home.

We had been assigned certain types of poems to write throughout our unit and this was our first assigned poem where it was completely free choice. I loved to write freely.
