"You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover's arms can only come later when you're sure they won't laugh if you trip". ~Jonathan Carroll~


And so I will walk.
I will walk down this long, narrow path.
Plank after plank passing under my feet.

And so I will walk.
I will continue walking towards the light.
I know what I want most is at the end.

And so I will walk.
I will make it to the end. I swear it.
There is no turning back .

And so I will walk.
I can see my happy ending coming near.
I will take what's mine and smile.

And so I'm here.
I've made it to my prize I longed for.
I see you open up those arms and I am home.

And so I will stay.


The author's comments:
I write a lot of poems and most of them rhyme so this was my attempt at a free verse.
