I didn’t notice life was a funnel until I looked back and saw the light grow fainter and fainter. Each decision made reduced the infinite possibilities of youth as if I were living in a “choose your own adventure” book.
I never felt I had finished one of those books until I read each ending.
I hate the idea that decisions made at twenty can extinguish the light from other paths forever.
I’m ready to shine a light on all those other paths. While I wish I could see the ending before choosing, those paths are still there to take.
I’m linking up with Lance’s 100 Word Song prompt at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog. The idea is to write 100 words, inspired by the song. This week’s song was “See A Little Light,” which reminds me of my youth. In the hopes of finding my writing mojo, I’m not grinding over this. I wrote until there were 100 words and I’m not massaging it.
