The Road To….

Ponte San Angelo, 2011

I place one foot in front of the other


As if I know where I’m going.

To others, it may appear that I am in a hurry.

But the speed of my steps is a mask…

I don’t want them to know that I am allowing the wind to sway me

in unknown directions.

I don’t want them to know that I am looking for

a place to rest.

I don’t want them to know that I don’t have a place where I feel

at home.

So I keep walking


Although sometimes I slip or trip

but seldom do I fall.

For I’ve learned to find

inner balance

and not show that my steps are uncertain or

that I am unsure of the direction I’ve chosen to go.

My fickle heart,

please lead me home.

Namaste and thank you for visiting my page! | I am a human being committed to living in alignment with my soul and true self. New lessons are welcome and change is embraced in my world. | I obtained two degrees back-to-back and though I had written poetry and stories when I was younger, that part of my creativity ceased during my studies. I decided to share in this format when I began the rediscovery of the artist in me. May my lessons serve you. | Feel free to leave a comment, send me a message or connect on Twitter or Instagram @tamaranikic. T | ALL posts Β© Copyright of Tamara Nikic as dated.
