Drawn forward (f)

But then, when you start drawing you can never be quite sure what is going to happen next, can you?*
(Quentin Blake)

Paradoxically, a self-centred self cannot become more complex, because all the psychic energy at its disposal is invested in fulfilling its current goals.**

I thought it possible
to get
there from
here but could not
and cannot only
move directly
or outwardly

indirectly and
inwardly
are my lessons
learned
am
learning

to there
replaced

keep exploring
old man
make maps
fill the blank
spaces

there are no
monsters
only wonders to
fall into

hope myself from
here
courage myself to
there
seek seek
seek
forward

keep exploring
old man
make maps
fill the blank
spaces

falling
failing
confess
begin again

through the wild
wrangling
wrestling
wrenching

keep exploring
old man
make maps
fill the blank
spaces

to there
replaced
