I am the plateau, in times of great ordeal, with myself or with the world around Me....needless to say those in it....I always seem to find myself at the waters edge, reaching out with the branches of my heart in hope of clarification in the form aqua....or such is the way of my uncanny wishful thinking.
 In these moments I've come to a great many conclusions.... I need to let him go, maybe I should apologize, life changes people, I'm never alone, life can be as beautiful as it is repulsive but thus is the nature of something so unpredictable, I've made poor choices and take full responsibility for them, I love him he loves me not, and of course the infamous; why.... Alongside a plethora of cushioned fluff to ease my tiresome nerves in the wake of watching a mother duck and her darlings walk by, and wondering what thoughts they have of me as I of them....digression from young adult life at its finest only remembering that it was such actions that lead me seated here presently.
 
Life has its own way of teaching.... Witnessing the kidnapping of one of mother ducks little ones, it left me startled but provided a coherent message, what appears to be a tragedy can indeed be fated destiny..... Maybe a loss is a gain in learning how to win  and winning is but a chance to say we didn't lose......it seems I have found a possible new philosophy to adopt.
