The Finish Line

This isn’t goodbye. This is hello to

a different kind of battle, one I’ll fight in

longer strides, bigger and bolder strokes

of color, too long overdue. This isn’t

goodbye, but you might not see me

for a while, dear friend–

and upon my return I may be scarred.

I won’t be wounded, at least no

more than I am now. This isn’t goodbye.

I’ll see you at the finish line,

though I’m not sure how far away it is.
