I usually do not know
where the words will take me
They just show up
At any place or time
they take my hand
and invite me to come with them

While I throw breadcrumbs on the way
they guide me to the depths of my mind
To places I haven’t been before
where they teach me everything I need to know

But only when I go back
when I retrace the steps
While I pick up breadcrumb after breadcrumb
I start to gather the meaning
to uncover the truth
Of what has been there
all along
