The Halfway Point

Standing here
in this hot minute

I’m a few steps in
in to my 50’s
I look back
all the steps I’ve made
all those versions of me
all the life lived
loved
done well
done poorly

Standing here
in this hot minute

Am I happy?
Am I content?
No.
Not completely.
Is anyone complete?
Maybe we are
when we move from
this world to whatever
lies beyond.

Standing here
in this hot minute

I look ahead.
Life begs,
pleads,
woos me to answer
the burning question
in my breast.
Where do I want
to go from here?

As I  stand
in this hot minute
