Spreading my energies out
upon too many people and projects,
my influenced blurred,

Energy wasted,
Thoughts disregarded,
Talents unused,
I expended effort
with little effect.

Seeing being restricted
to my home as a hindrance
to my progress and happiness,
I resented it.

Then a focusing came.
I slowly began to see that
the quiet seclusion of my home
allows me to function in a manner
natural to me;
personally, in depth.

At last I realize that it is
through the lens of writing
that my thoughts are sharpened,
organized, clarified, effectively shared,
and my life finally brought into focus.
