well dug

don’t show me

the endless, shallow ditches you dug

the miles you crossed in ceaseless searching

don’t show me

the countless, abandoned cracks in the crust

show me instead

the hole you honed

that turned into the pit

that you dared crawl into

and then you crept some more

show me the well

that you dared dive into

and you dwelled

until you hit your spring

as the river you reamed

to share that fresh water

out in a stream

like never before

releasing to the world

because you are willing to unfurl

to be bold and unfold

your story now told

now show me

how you laugh and pivot

whenever you see a divot

and know

to ditch it
