I’m ready to start my life here in Tampa.
In a city instead of the countryside,
a subdivision surrounded by like houses,
people that form a melting pot, small lawns,
cobble stone driveways, and all amenities
a close bike ride away.
This change is easier now after my trek
to the mountain house where a few months
away was like a time of enlightenment .
It’s easier to see things for what they are,
to see what is important, instead
of comparisons and remembrances.
My desires lie in the future now,
I’m ready to move on.
