“Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.”

- Albert Camus


Some days, when life feels like it is crushing me
Closing up around me
I want to run
Grab my rucksack
Get on the nearest bus
I know there is more out there
Then where I was born and raised
But somehow, invisible strings pull me back
But each time I attempt to leave
I become stronger
Snapping them
One by one
There is too much in the world to discover
To climb up Mount Everest
To drive down route 66
To hitch hike through Europe
To discover and meet
To fall in love
The world is your oyster
But it is buried deep in the sand
If you keep digging
Keep persisting
And do not give up
You will find it
Use it
