Where I am in my life .

The place you are in
I am as close to becoming as I am to becoming - undone.
I am as close to youth as I am to death.
As close to being in love as I am to being alone .
It is not a bad place – it is just a moment .
I have made my own bed – and I sleep in it.
I have made peace with my choices and stick by them.
I am learning to change my routines which have provided
a false sense of security.
 I am doing what makes me scared- everyday.
I am in constant change and a little off key and unsure .
I am walking that thin line between settled and upset.
This burst of expression is both unusual and familiar.
It is the place I am in and tomorrow I will be in a new place.
What place are you in?
