On the Road

Form: Free Verse

The choice that isn’t a choice
but an unchosen decision
to shed the self-imposed shell
and face the derision
of those expectations
that could never be met
it is not bravery
it is not strength of courage
but the strength of necessity
the need to me
no rainbows, no glory
this is not writing a story
of playing a role
the transition to self
but that is not the journey
just a part of a much longer road
a detour or change of direction
on the journey of life
