through the briars

Destiny set down her case
and the heavy
burdens inside, unpacked
the joy that would not have
shown without the failure
the vulnerability that would not have
surfaced with the tried
and proven errors
the wrong turns
she took
only through the briars
would the better path be
and tucking each choice back into their container,
picked up what she could handle
and soldiered on.
