With her back pack and meagre savings
she was ready to go.
She had been held back for far too long
taking care of everyone else
and trying to fit into their dreams,
which never felt right.
Now it’s time to chase after hers,
though she felt nervous about the future
though she knew that she would bumble along the way
and make many mistakes
they were hers to make and to grow from
and the future favours the bold who chase their dreams.
