Maybe…

© By Emily Genatowski

maybe If I go away I can figure out

what my life’s supposed to be and what it’s all about

maybe if I go away I can finally tell

what it is that I can’t do and what I can do well

maybe if I go away I can break the mold

of what I’ve seen and what I’ve done and all that I’ve been told

maybe if I go away I can then be sure

of what I want less of and what of I want more

maybe if I go away I can understand

what I should let go of and what I should demand

maybe if I go away I can learn to be

fine with being me, when me is half of we

maybe if I go away I can leave behind

the life that I have here and explore another kind

maybe if I go away I can seek what’s true

but just for me and not for him and not for her or you

maybe if I go away I can find a way

to express myself each day and say what I want to say

maybe if I go away I can soon un-hack

a way to make ‘going away’ a way of coming back

via Reflection – maybe….
