“All Packed Up and Going” – Pasay, 13 April 2016

what
are we
fleeing from
in the
wee smalls,
where
do we
go from
here?

courses uncharted
parts unknown
anywhere but
here:
as far
as we
can go.

to soothe
to mend
what needs
mending;
to tear
to rend
what needs
rending;
to see
new sights,
to hear
new tunes,
to breathe
fresher air
than this.

wipe away
those forlorn
tears,
push away
those dreaded
fears:
come away
fly away
embrace
the freedom
of the
skies.
