Thank you for my life. Thank you for its grandeur, for its sweet simplicity. Thank you for this chaotic brain, this point of view that is mine and mine alone, thank you for where I live on the Autism Spectrum, for being my superpower, my fuel source for every single thing I have ever created. For the details it shows me, the magic it finds, the struggles that make me stronger. Thank you for every piece of curiosity and joy, thank you for every heartbreak I swore would end me. Thank you for this life, thank you.

Are you a sunrise or a sunset, cloudy day or bluebird skies? Are you a silhouette or a shine? Are you roll of thunder or a lightning strike? Are you what you always knew you could be? Tell me below. (at Helena, Montana)

Sometimes the weather finds you, no matter how unprepared you are, blankets you in wind and wet and gale and fog. Sometimes you’re lost in it, dark for miles. Sometimes the light bursts through, reminding you the direction home. Look for the glow and head right for it.

Sometimes you gotta leap, take a jump into the unknown and hope for the best. Sometimes you’ve been perched so long you forget your wings, forget the songs you were handed down, the songs you once sang. Sometimes you’re stuck and frozen in fear and worry and the weight of what it. Sometimes it takes one breeze of a push to remind you, to stretch out those wings, to hum those notes again.

Layers and lines and stones older than America. Longing for the foggy hillsides of Scotland today, longing for the song of the road.

Been thinking a lot about authenticity lately, about getting lost in the shuffle of this place for not doing what I know I could do to be a hell of a lot more successful. If I was a smarter businessman, I’d make all of my poetry bite-sized, quotable quotes, filled with clichè and trending words with hashtags to back them. I’d make them all about either sex, or being lonely, I’d pay influencers with millions of followers to rant and rave about my work, I’d write about what I knew the algorithm wanted me to write about, poised and ready for each post to go viral. But why? What am I here for, what is the point of all this, if I’m not writing to clear the clutter in this brain of mine? What’s the point of mass producing garbage that means nothing to me, that isn’t a truth I know, that I stand behind and would fight for? We’re here a short time, and each of us has a different story to tell, a different version of the truth inside, and if I don’t tell you it, as it is, as it’s always been, I’m failing you, but more, I’m failing myself. I’ve been doing this a long, long time, before poetry on Instagram exploded into what it is now, but I have way less people seeing the words I say than the most popular writers in this place, and I hope you understand how very Ok with this I am. I know that what I put out, what I share with you, is ripped directly out of this brain, this heart, this soul of mine, and out of 2600 poems over 2600 days in a row, every single word is truthful, every single word exploded onto the page in a moment of joy, of rage, of sorrow, or of passion. This ain’t changing, not for anyone, and however that affects my viability, my success, my life, is alright with me. Thanks for being along for this ride with me, all of you who care about these random ramblings. Thanks for listening to the truth as I know it.

If it all adds up, your shoulders ache and legs burn from what you carry, close your eyes and imagine a place. A trail leading off into the distance. Smell the air, the sea, the soil, feel the breeze and light on one half of your face. Breathe. Now, with eyes closed, walk that path until things calm. Follow it, your mind knows how, and forget the weight for a moment. It’s ok to rest. It’s ok to feel free. You have earned this.

It’s alright to be small, to stay humble in the world, to think of yourself less than you think of others. It’s ok to downplay your successes, to change the subject to the person you’re talking to, to avoid any applause aimed your way. It’s ok to feel uncomfortable when birthday songs are sang your way, when the spotlight finds you. It’s ok. If you’re ok, if you’re happy, it’s ok.

Questions of the future plague us, and often. Where do we go, how do we stay afloat, relevant, successful? How do we make a living, support ourselves, our families? We carry the weight of these, big ourselves down, and wonder at our own exhaustion. I won’t tell you to stop, because these worries are real ones, legitimate and necessary concerns as adulthood creeps in, as life demands it, but I will ask you to set it down from time to time. Take this as a reminder, not to look forward, but look around you now, see what you have, and offer appreciation for it. If what you see is not what you wish, if you are unhappy and lonely, overwhelmed and searching, realize this is a perfect place to start. Understand that you know lowness, and that makes you so beautifully qualified to love the peaks as you will inevitably rise to them. Pause here. Appreciate.
