A baby bird must fly eventually. A mother never wants to let go, but it was time for my own journey out of the nest. I took my own tentative steps down the path that leads to my future, the distance cloaked in mystery. I feel scared of the shadowy unknown I’m plunging into, heartbeats too loud, echoing through the chaos of my mind. I’m alone now, braving the world of college.


Fog shrouds my future,

Goodbyes are never easy,

Time for big changes.
