A Poem by Valentine

                Thoughts

Never thought the day would come;
  That I would want to bolt and run.

    But...that day is finally here...
     And my heart is full of fear.

        Who will welcome me,
                    when,
                I get there?

It's that question begging "I'll never know if I never go" One life one chance after that maybe a surprise welcoming party awaits.A nice write Kathie. It's everyone's anxiety I think.

Filled with inner strife and honest emotion. Sometimes those questions can not be answered. We have to jump believing the safety net will appear. Lydi**

I do understand this poem. I want to run and bolt daily. I wish for new places and quiet. Thank you dear friend for sharing the excellent poetry.

John, I did the bolting from Arkansas to Michigan, but nothing is the same. Kathie
That "leap of faith" is always the hardest part. I loved the analogy of this poem - it says so much in just a few well chosen words.

Thank you for your insight. Kathie
Good one, Kathie. I like the way the form itself dwindles down on the page. Very fitting.
