building myself

It’s always a challenge to become ourselves

easier maybe with role models

someone to watch

observe

mimic

until we find our own meaning

our own stride

 

harder without

no footsteps to follow

no blueprints to crib from

how do I know

the steps, the beat

the melody

to learn and memorize

and modify

 

“What you buildin?”

“myself”

“What’s it gonna look like when you’re done?”

“I’m not sure yet”

“so how can you build it?”

“I don’t know”
