My sister’s a skipper. Someone who starts things and doesn’t finish them. She just skips from school to school, from relationship to relationship.
What if he is a skipper too ? Someone who puts things aside without finishing them…someone who would want to skip this life, a life he has chosen ? What if he really could skip, jump to the next life and leave me and everything in his life behind ?
I decided long ago to not do that unless I had a purpose other than what I was skipping. If I needed to cut through the path to follow another path that gets me closer to the goal. I prefer not to wander too much but what if he is a wanderer ? What if he is starting something right now and is not certain he’s on the right path, not sure what road to take and he has to skip this one ?
What if what is being offered in another life is more appealing than a life with me ? What if what I have to offer just isn’t enough ?
I am different. So is he. What we can have together on this path may be greater than what we could have by following another road, on another life.
I decided long ago not to be a skipper. But what if he is ?
Turns out he isn’t. He’s still here, he still says I’m never going to get rid of him.
