On My Way by Jenn Knickerbocker & Jake St. John

On My Way

As the delicate snow
finds it’s destined path
to the ground,
I look out
and ponder
its existence.
if it’s real
then I’m real
and feelings
breath after breath
the fragile state
of the snow,
melting on contact,
the emotional
turmoil inside
a book with no words
a forest of trees
I carve out a path
I must choose
a decision of ages
I opt
to no longer be
to this body,
to just be
an open road
to the moon
dropping over the horizon
