i need to find something i want and really go after it. but what do i want?

i need to reach higher

i remember when i couldn’t reach the doorknob

it was too high for even the tips of my toes

and i had to let others open

and i had to let others open and close it

for me

when i had them hold me up

so i could even glimpse the outside world

through blinds that were only

through blinds that were only partially

through blinds that were only partially opened

and even now i don’t open them.

i shut the closet door with all the clothes

and just barely latch it before it all tumbles out

and just barely latch it before it all tumbles out like

a waterfall i once saw

a waterfall i once saw that gushed with broken ice

the mountains dropped.

i could be reaching for the stars

but i’m still grasping after the

but i’m still grasping after the plate of cookies

that’s only just above my head.

i could balance on the tip of my toes

i could balance on the tip of my toes and snatch one

but the effort that takes

but the effort that takes would wipe me out for weeks

but i need to reach.

i need to reach.
