~The Fork in Your Road~

I see the man
Aware of me
Aware of
The dichotomy
Of this way
And that way
On one hand
Listening to
What they say
Quietly
Stoically
“This is how its supposed to be”
Says he
Convincingly
Some days
Unconvincingly
Other days
Wondering
Blundering
Covering
Up
The fire
Of desire
To walk
Another way.

On the other hand
Theres no listening to
What they say
Loudly
Proudly
Out loudly
Speaking
“I honor a different way”
Says he
Convincingly
Some days
Unconvincingly
Other days
Driven
Ambition
Admission
Of
The fire
May dim
Within him
If what he knows
Becomes not
What he chose
Silently opposed
He will stay.
Quietly grey
He will say
“I was brave enough to know the other way.”

You are lucky
to have a close family like that.

Very.
Your family is close too right?
At least your parents and you?

Not at all.

I’m sorry you aren’t close to your family. Their loss.
You’re amazing.

Amazing..lol…well thanks.

Welcome.
Hard to explain.
You’re genuine and direct.
You are unique.
You are tough…
but a softie at the same time.
You’re unapologeticicaly…
not afraid to be you.
You’re intelligent and experienced.
Some people would call that “wise.”
So far I’ve never seen you just give up
or wallow in self doubt
or pity.
All pretty awesome.

Thank you.
I’m not used to those things being validated at all.

No problem.
Hopefully…
it gives you a deeper view
into how I see you.
I use simple words to describe things, but there is a bit underneath the surface.
I’m not the greatest with words.

I knew that when I met you.
You don’t need to be.

Good.
