Girl In Transit

Been a while on this dreary plain, 
stuck in limbo.
every other day.
But today,
like a suitcase I filled up my emptiness with all the broken pieces of me I could find littered all over the floor of my life.
I broke down my walls and set forth at dawn,
on a journey to myself, to wholeness.

The transporter, driver, passenger and destination.

I realized were all me?.
I wonder why life has to be ridden with paradoxes on the wheels of ironies.
They also say life is a journey
and so here I am tripping over metaphors,
In hopes that I stumble upon the answers to my questions, 
or maybe find clarity or closure,
wherever the bus stops.

So much I don't understand;
somedays; my smile rises with the sun
but when night falls, 
so does my tear drops.
I'm torn and so to feel less disheveled, 
I curl up into that foetal position.
Instincts?... maybe.
I guess I still revel in the nostalgia of that womb world, a safe haven, a shield from life.
Little wonder I cried like I would die, 
the moment I was pushed out.
I still cry, even now.
Looking in and looking out; everywhere staring right back: with no sign nor answer in their eyes. 
sigh.

But life is a journey...
and it's never free to want to be free.
So I trade my life jacket for a bus ticket,
It may get cold but it's okay.
I'm on my way to be whole, 
to find residence for my soul.




Cheers
