Numbness fills the space
of feelings named wrong

like a hobbled balloon
punctured on purpose

What is this feeling
called guilt

this slippery
as moss on a rock feeling

of not good enough

were mistakes made
or perhaps choices

only to suffer
the fish-line tangle

of shoulds and should nots

does everyone
need a trophy to win

or is a path of discovery
the greatest prize

a meaning assigned
to uncertainty

like recognizing the strength
of a pruned rose

leafing in time
to fill the empty space

no longer numb
but believing

a larger process is at work
