Leaving the roller coaster ride of the body for a walk around the park. One spends decades trying to deal with and get used to the ups and downs of the body and then it changes-from the wild ups and downs of the roller coaster to that period one spends walking around a bit to regain bearings before starting the journey home.
It is life in general. Some things become less, some things become more. It is not good or bad, but different- different body, different events, different perspective, and a different acceptance. And that is where the walk around the park leads to the quiet of moments at the reflection pond.
My hormones left and
Didn’t leave me a note to
Say where they’re going.
