Before I was a blogger, I was a poet. It’s been a while since I’ve written poetry.  I found this recently, wrote it back in 2007.  It’s amazing to relive what I was feeling when I wrote this and make connections to how I feel and where I am today.  This is why I write.  To remember what I’ve been through on my way to where I’m going.

fighting the urge to fly;

to get into my car

with no destination in mind

to leave behind all I know and love

and trust

longing to see something

unfamiliar;

to discover ancient beauty

and modern awe

longing for a transient setting

Torn between love and wonder,

necessity and curiosity,

security and hunger.

Lost without the world to see.
