Up and Away

“Shoes to Run Away In” – Alabang, 01 December 2015

off to

adventures

away from

here,

breaking free

of the

fetters

holding me

down;

i surrender

to the

whims,

to the

fancies

of fate

and go

where the

winds

take me.

 

off on

a journey

seeking

my truth:

who

am i,

what

am i,

why

do i

wander these

paths;

how

do i

stop,

when

will i

stop,

where

do i

go

from here?

 

slipping on

shoes,

knapsack slung

onto a

shoulder;

my hat

at a

jaunty angle,

a tune

on my

lips,

love

in my

heart…

 

away

i go.
