Avoidance

Our life is a denying really
A truly stepping away
From it all.

It is a saying No
To all the apparent
Yeses, isn’t it?

Blocking our children’s
Spontaneous steps,
Closing doors for them.

For us too swinging
To the gates
Of our futures.

Further enclosing ourselves
Into tinier and tinier
Hexed boxes.

Until we’ve created
A miniature maze,
Returning in square circles.
