Poem : Walking Forward


In the distance is something I see
Something that I had not always known was there
My life was busy before
Building rockets to the sky


In the distance was the light
Just out of reach
Dipping behind fronds of every day matter


Crisscrossed by life’s unending roadways
I followed the hedges
With the sun just always a step behind


The day has come to step out front
Jump the hedge high in my saddle to the other side
To leap out of the distance into the near
Around the shadows into the light
Claim my life
No matter what
Regardless who
And walk quietly forward
