“All Set” – Muntinlupa, 28 July 2016

packed up
ready to
fly
adventure beckons
and i
must go.

satchel
at the
ready,
notebook
in hand,
pen
poised to
scribble
tales and
epistles
from places
far
from here.

and they
ask:
will you
return?

and i
answer:
maybe,
maybe not.

the world
at large
sings its
siren song
and i
must heed
it,
and i
must record
its tale,
so i
must go.
