Closing Poetry

leave-taking

Taking a breath and saying goodbye. Stéph Kuypers' ode to beginning an adventure.

by Stéph Kuypers

tomorrow
is the start
of some great adventure

but today I am not ready
and I am clinging
and clawing at familiarity

where is it now,
the bravery of heroines
the fearlessness of my childhood self 

here I am,
just human,
scared, but desperately wanting
the knot in my throat
to unwind just a little
so I can swallow  

so I can step onto the open road

so I can
so I can
so I can
