The Truth About Progress

Progress is not linear

and oftentimes it’s not even logical

until you stop searching

forward

and instead

look back

through those

bottle-bottom glasses

of hindsight.

Sometimes you land up

exactly where you were before

only to find you

have lost a judgment

to gain a perspective.

Sometimes there’s no reward only

to know that what you know

is still obscure;

having but one grain of experience

to thicken your wisdom-stew.

And in the end,

your evolution

is defined by

a single choice;

are you in this purely for where you think you want to be?

or

are you invested in surrendering to the divination of the journey itself?
