To Anywhere

“Roxas Boulevard” – Paranaque, 25 February 2016

the road

stretches

before me;

i cannot

see

where it

leads

where it

ends.

 

and i

pull myself

together;

rub the

sleep

out of

my eyes,

sling my

knapsack

over a

shoulder,

step out

the door.

 

and i

get on

the bus

take a

seat

by the

window

to watch

the world

fly by

as i

seek

my truth

in parts

in destinations

unknown.
