Things get in the way.

Life makes our choices for us.

It seems we choose

to let it sway our branches,

draw us deep into long, dismal spirals

and harangue our virtues

with insipid melodramas.

But if we are rooted

in the rich soil of our detriments,

we can spoil the firmament

with our outstretched hands.
