I love the roads
And especially the ones that take me to the mountains – “home”
I love the roads, all kinds of roads
The curvy roads, the bumpy roads,
Unruly and dusty roads
And the ones with tall mountains in the background.
The people I meet on these roads,
The stories I hear, see, feel
The signboards by the side of roads
Like bookmarks between the pages,
Or like new chapters that
I’m always eager to begin
Lessons learned, stories shared, moments stolen
Finding peace amidst the chaos,
I love it all.
