NaPoWriMo #6: ‘Branching’


I am a multitude.Branches_of_a_tree

By Maggie McGinity

You look at me like I’m crazy
But you can’t see
There’s a world outside these walls
A home outside these halls

If, for you, this is enough
That’s fine
Your life will be rough
And nothing like mine

I’m not just one thing
I couldn’t stand myself
So many eggs in so many baskets
It’s not something I can help

But all my time divided and thinkin’
Leads one place, without a doubt,
Instead of always always always staying in
I’m branching out.
(I’m reaching out)”


“If there is one word that makes creative people different from others, it is the word complexity. Instead of being an individual, they are a multitude.” – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
