This is a Young Professional Advice from Friends post written by V from Borderline Adults. YPAF is a collection of voices from different ages, places and industries to share advice on starting off and being twenty. This week V has taken a new approach to YPAF by submitting a poem.
You would think it would be a Haiku
The way it flows is fragmented.
Never sure if you will ever understand the ending
The way it constantly changes.
Everyone’s compass is pointed in a different direction
When at one time they were all pointed north together.
But isn’t it fun to watch the dial spin
As you dance around the coordinates?
Never will there be a time more entertaining than this
I intend on looking back at the memories with a sigh.
But for now, I will search for my purpose
While I dance around the coordinates
