Appalachian Trail- #Poem #Hiking #Appalachian Trail #AT

The clock is ticking

It won’t be long now

I set myself the goal

I can’t turn back

Nervousness is mounting

Will the training be enough?

Fevered conversations with experts

Driving me onto the trail

Unknown will be my conditions

But I’ll have to pack for all

Hope filling my eyes

Expectations high

What will I learn from my journey

Maybe nothing at all

But maybe something will shift

In the way dreams are made of

With my trail over the mountains

That this will finally change my stars

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
