Forked and fractured forming
the fractal that is your life
blueprint of decisions where
you branched, split, bifurcated
took one turn or the other
separated from self, healed
division of days, continuum of
continuous dimensions
with stable fixed points
and limit cycles, sets that attract
as your trajectories converge
ego driven, tethered to
religious feelings, cultural habits
operating functions and recurrences
influenced and bombarded
by exterior stimulus, to pressure
jerk and break, falling into error
or finding brighter horizons
revolving in your head
initial conditions formed at home
but realizing later, you are alone.
