Back to the future

I realised today that I am falling backwards

From high and dizzying heights of an ego-driven life

Into quiet, honest, sincere times


It is a blessed relief


To be nothing other than my truth

In the moments when that’s possible


And, surprisingly, people are not running from me

As I sit with myself

Strangers still smile at me

Men still pay me attention


I have willingly joined the ranks of the plain

In the certain knowledge that I will build on it

Over time

And achieve my own version of greatness


And that is a Very Good Thing.
