They say "It's *your* life", and I thought I already knew...

lodestone

by erenah

it turns out that I still speak of her, a lot,

my mother,

and I've been given cause to wonder

what it means:

she who was once the greatest part of me -

the immense, implacable gravity of her will

which seems, still, to be a force that informs

what I do, and where I'm going,

though I've been imagining myself as free

or, I suppose, already free,

when I'm actually not *quite* yet at liberty

because for all that I remain a thrall

to some bizarre ideal of the filial

I will continue my pursuit

of a world beyond her reach

accepting that there will never be closure

knowing that there can always still be peace
