Don’t Give Up On Yourself

By: Katy A. Brown
“I’m on my way.
They may ask me, “Where to?”
Well, that I cannot say…
For even I have no clue.

I know it’s rather far,
For it has to make me whole.
The road to the stars,
The path to my soul.

I must go alone,
But I’ll miss you all, believe me.
I must travel into the unknown,
I must sail all of the seas.

You see, I’ve lost something of mine.
It’s special and grand…
Magnificent in its design.
How I lost it is hard to understand.

What did I lose?
Well…I’m not exactly sure.
Please, my confusion you must excuse…
I just know I must find a cure.

I have a terrible disease,
The name of it escapes me.
But it stops your hair from blowing in the breeze.
It stops your heart from feeling free.

I think it’s called “Lack of Adventure,”
But correct me if I’m wrong.
That is why I must go on this venture,
For my very essence I must prolong.

I think I may have left my heart somewhere
Or the part of me that believes….
I’ll be back soon, I swear!
But for awhile, I must leave.

I know I’m on my way,
And though I may not know where
Myself I cannot betray…
For I know I’m somewhere out there.”
