via Daily Prompt: Perplexed

She’s running.
They say
that she’s running from herself.
I’m not sure, however,
I see it that way.
All life’s coping mechanisms
are slightly more complex
than running to and fro
during stages of perplexion.
In these transitional life periods,
I believe it’s quite possible you
are running exactly where you are supposed to be;
are running right into
the creation of a new wonder—
the person you were always meant to be.
So at this time, dear reader,
I find running satisfactory.
