Open Road

This is a poem that I just wrote as a follow-up to my poem from the other day, "Broken Car". It is about the concept of longing for the roads in life that I never got to travel, and how instead I am trying to be optimistic about the road that I am currently on.

The Academy

This poem is about the beginning of my weight loss efforts. I purchased a scale recently to learn my weight for the first time in more than five years, and I have already lost 5 pounds. The longest running goal in my life has been to lose weight and become thin, and it seems I am finally in the right place in life to realize that goal.
