“Cruising Down the Boulevard” – Pasay, 25 April 2016

where will
the next
leg
of this
journey
take me?

i hope
i wish
i pray
far enough
away
putting enough
distance
between us.

to flee
to run
to break
away
from everyone
dear
from everything
familiar:
just to
get my
head
back on
straight.

just to
breathe
a little
more deeply
a little
easier
but
not enough
to forgive
to forget.

the open
road
awaits me,
the clear
sky
beckons me,
the open
sea
sings its
siren song.

and i –
none too
bravely –
take the
first step,
turn a
new page
into my
adventure.
