Traveling the Road


Not quite sure exactly why
This moving image makes me cry
A young boy setting along his way
City lights twinkle, an end to the day
Where is he headed?
What thoughts in his mind?
How is he feeling?
What will he find?
Which precious treasures in his knapsack?

A boy on a journey

So much to unpack.
