Road Trip

Exhumed

Breaking.

Breaching.

Deliberate misguidance.

As I am lost,

I am found.

As I wander,

I am discovered.

As I slip away,

I return to that which has been tucked beneath years of constructed individuation in hopes of acceptance and love.

As I roam the shadows, the buried parts of me,

I come closer to the light,

placing distance between my heart and fear.

And as I am further displaced from everything I’ve ever known,

I feel closer to home than I ever have.

Daily, I come closer to soulful exhumation.
