I walked in straight lines.
My feet carefully marking the street pavements.
I then walked in diagonals
Carefully marking the blocks with my sole.
I walked with my face down
Painfully acknowledging the pain and shame within.
I walked with these demons,
And they feasted on my failure.
It was at this point that I knew.
I knew I deserved it all.
I walked in solitude. I walked in pain.
