i stand

upon the

threshold

of tomorrow:

this is

my ending,

this is

my beginning.

 

a death

upon who

i used to

be;

the birth

of who

i’m supposed to

be.

 

throw away

the rubbish,

break the

bonds

holding me

back;

embrace the

walking staff,

the open

road

lying before

me.

 

who knows

where i’ll go;

who cares

what i’ll be…

 

all i

care about

is the

journey:

parts unknown,

words to be

said,

life to be

lived.
