I live in a life of acts
separated by parts, stretched across silos
I live apart, in part, and parts
my soul is not contiguous
to my body. my spirit. my will, my dreams. my values. my potential.
my body is segmented.
in some parts, I face backwards, in some parts, I am forward-facing
the growth I help you do does not reflect the nurturing I provide myself
I am not level.
I must hibernate
for the next 6 years, I will repent for the last 8.
I live in silos.
my life is fragmented
my mind, my soul.
but I won’t walk back.
