In a not
So distant past
And a not
So blurry memory
Lives a part of me
That I have
Left behind.

The Straight Path
Beckons me
With love and light.
I have to travel alone.
And go a long way.

Emotional baggage
Weighs us down.
So I have left
It all behind.
And I have filled
My heart
With longing
For a brighter tomorrow.

The journey ahead
promises new bounties.
I need to
Travel light.
