Crossroad … The Journey South

 … i ran away into a night of bitter cold determined to 
hitch 1,200 miles away from that
cold winter bitch to another place where 
maybe I’d find the warm nurturing wind I
felt before the roadblock I encountered at the …

crossroad …


I didn’t know if i could

leave my frustration and rage

behind but,

It didn’t

matter …


All that mattered was that I was

on the road away from the

past …


As I watched the miles fly by through the

rolling hills of Ohio and

Kentucky … the mountains of

Tennessee and Georgia …

recollections of the

past streamed further and further

behind …


I existed for the

moment …


I gave no thought to

my future

life …


i had no ideas …


nothing had yet

filled the

void …


i consoled the vacancy of my

expectations with the thought that …

the future will make itself

known …


When I passed into the flat land of

Florida, where I saw

palm trees and abundant

sunshine … so strangely different than

what I had lived with all my

life …  I thought, “… maybe my life will take on a

different look, just as these

trees and the

white hot sun of this new

land … .”
