A poem

Unsplash photo by Scott Gummerson

Before I pick up a pen,
I have to think about
the words a few times.

It could be terrifying
to actualize
certain
moments,
thoughts,
emotions.

And sometimes,
I say
“pass”
to opportunities
of self-discovery.

You wander far beyond

Where you’ve been raised,

As far as you could go

With a car

And a tank of gas

As far as your wallet could wander,

As far as your environment could venture.

When in all honesty,

The truth lies

In front of the mirror

The whole time.
