Behind the Trail Scene: A Poem

Forever She Wanders is the story of my existence,

each chapter should be filled with going the distance…

But I truly understand that can’t always be the pace,

I’ve challenged myself to sit with my feelings,

that I’ve learned to embrace.

I look forward to the day I get to look back and say,

That I’m proud to have followed my dreams.

As I sit on the couch with the fear of missing out,

I present to you, Behind the Trail Scene.

It’s not always alpine lakes and waterfalls,

clear blue skies and sunny days.

Nope- I’m not always on the open road, hitting the trails,

or have calendars filled with adventure days.

You see, some days, if not most-

I’m working a normal job, and I sit a behind desk.

My Instagram looks pretty, but my life is surely a mess.

I deal with personal issues, that I’ve chosen not to share.

But I see how important it is, to be more self-aware.

Time spent on the trail, with the challenges that I face,

helps me grow internally and puts the mind in a better place.

Each and every day, a new blank page, and presented with a choice.

Chapter by chapter, as my story is being written from the words of a curious voice.
