A child questions a decision

the busyness

a beehive in their deep minds

Which path will become their map?

Their sky is beyond tree lines, but only one life, not nine

can’t be scared like felines

The universe sees farthest

Its got your back like a net to a trapeze artist

I should give this post more framework, but I'm just so "blah" when

Every day an insecure person seeks to prove something to themselves by asking another person the all-annoying question, "So, what do you do for a living?" 
 

People pursuing a passion despise this question. Yes, I just spoke for all of us.
