Here I Go Again

Here I go again,

but at least

toward the horizon,

off the endless looping trail

that was but an adventure illusion,


for even though each day differed

upon that familiar path,

the way it returned me back again

made my soul so restless.


I itched not to be reckless

nor carefree

but for a reassurance

that I was where I was meant to be,


but all the dreaming I did

beneath the wishing stars

filled me with the growing belief

that my true north

was neither fantasy nor far,


so here I go again

but not to loop around:

I’m headed for the horizon

treading upon new ground


in desperate search

of nothing,

but open to being
