Poetry: The Journey

Published 2008 in LBCC’s “Creative Highway” magazine.

The Journey

Don’t judge by what you see
There is so much more to me
I have walked the high road
And traveled the low
On the long journey to the sea

Now I stand upon the edge
Trying to find my way down
I’ve hoped; I’ve prayed
I’ve lost my way
But I know I can be found

Somewhere across the sea
Where people don’t know me
My sins, all gone
Washed away are fears
Of the things I used to be

So don’t judge me
There is so much more to see
I always find my way
To a better day
To a place I can be free
