Poem sideways

Perhaps you’ll find a way,
pretty much as a sign
of strength
or weakness
or God.

Once you have been there
it is all the same
after a while

Every day I was in college when we were
going through
a good idea
something happened
that caught my head,
turned me around.

Maybe they do it on purpose.
Maybe they knew it.
Maybe it is part of the tuition.

Maybe the real lesson
is always to be found
and sideways
and never
straight on.
