getting here

It was a long journey to here
One she traveled alone
Carving her own path
Facing her deepest struggles
Falling down countless times
But always getting back up

She never knew she would end up here
Even though it was so close
And she past this place many times before

She never knew that her digging deep into herself
Would help her find her way home
But she was always digging, always seeking
Searching for the little things that fed her soul

A small studio apartment
Walls adorned with memories created
A red bicycle with a basket
Taking in her on countless adventures

The library and coffee shop
Being her home away from home
Pen in hand
Words flowing
She found her way to herself

And now she is here
Overflowing with love and gratitude
For this day
The journey that got her here
And the adventures that are yet to be
