{poem} an ache agitates your soul

An ache agitates your soul.

A memory

from long ago

leaks into the present.

The familiar feeling

of regret

or resentment

briefly flashes.

Wondering

how this thing

you call life

got so off track.

Questioning

how you became who you

think you are.

Feeling

astounded

that the same

doubts

fears

and ways of

sabotaging

still run the show.

How did you get to this place

that looks so different

than what you planned for?

And.

How do you get back

to the fork in the road

so you can take the other path?
