and here I am

looking over my own shoulder,

into the face of the world,

the face of freedom.

and no matter how hard I look


to find a path,

search for signs..

something tangible,

something to guide me,

so I don’t have to feel responsible for the entirety of my life...

the only thing I see

out there

is my own gaze

staring at me with fierce knowing,

reminding me

that although the universe may act as a divine navigation system,

I am still the one deciding where I go

and how I get there.
