My Journey

by Vikki Bonyata

For most of my life I have been running,
Although for the past 30 years it has been more like running in place.

When I was a kid, I sat on the porch swing in the evening
Looking at Mrs. Robert's post cards
Of placves far away that I could only imagine.
It awakened the wanderlust.

In the depths of my soul
Is the desire to open my eyes
And see new things. Experience new things.

I will always be running.
My journey will never be complete
Until the end- when I reach my final destination.
