Beginning in the dark

With only a clue to guide

One piece at a time

One letter at a time

As in jigsaw

Or crossword

Or word search

Or sudoku

Or life

Hmmm…

What happens if

You don’t have a

picture

to look at?

You don’t have a

dictionary

to search with?

You don’t have a

word bank

to choose from?

You can’t add?

What happens if

the last piece of

your puzzle

is                                  lost?

Got eaten by the

dog?

Or the

baby?

Or found its’ way to the

seamless depths

of the couch?

Your pencil broke?

What happens then?

Are you lost?

Do you quit?

Do you throw everything on the                     floor?

Do you get angry?

Or cry?

Or laugh?

Call your best friend?

Eat chocolate?

Or ice cream?

Do you

blame

someone else?

Or take the

heat yourself?

Does a part of you die?

Like salt on a slug.

Vinegar is not an alkali.

I don’t quit.

I won’t quit.

I can’t quit.

Me,

myself, and I,

We three will always try…
