I suddenly opened my eyes, a great feeling
inside that no one could understand.
I took my bags out of the car, the sky seemed so
clear, surely this was my time. For a moment
my mind dragged me back reminding me how
much I have lost, how much I have tried to make it happen,
but as I am standing here I feel brand new.
I take out my phone to announce my arrival to my friends and family.
They are all excited, they believe this is a sign of good hope
I opened the first door, when I was about to open the last one
a receptionist quickly took the keys…
“I am sorry they must have left the wrong key”
“I am sorry ma’am, these things happen sometimes”
When you think you have finally arrived but
somehow the reality just hit you
