Now that I'm here


Glancing out the window,

the wind sweeps as the

bare trees sway, crumpled

dry leaves and dust.


Warm sweaters and coloured

scarves, quickened steps-

in the crowd, we're all still trying

to reach a destination unknown.


Here I am, eyes to a different

w o r l d with no borders.

Even in the lingering cold,

the simple winters day, smiles.


And while waiting, but

realizing that dreams don't


they fade (ever so silently)...


Surpassing the loneliness,

in my heart I know, one day-

Find my way through it all,

to reach what was meant to be.


Now that I'm here,

I will continue on.
