Rising From the Ashes

And what will you do with your wild, untethered days

..other than sit around pacifying in the chains of expectation?

When did you lose sight of the destination you set out to reach?

Did you pawn off your non-negotiables at the station?

Forge signatures just to make the connection?

Convince yourself that miles ran and participation ribbons, only count if they’re playing for keeps?

Dear child, a destination of that kind can only be reached when you stop running..

Because you are it, sis.
