Once I Go


Once I Go


Once I go, I don’t want to be found

lost won’t be nor alone

a duffle bag of memories hung by my side

in my pockets fear tucked away inside

and regrets, well regrets will keep in hand

“like a seed that has been sown”

but no one to understand.


Once I go, my footprints will disappear

and only dust will remain

for none to follow or none to see

in the distance if I look back to appease

the guilt and pain I leave behind

once I go from looking back I will refrain

for lost won’t be

and in the dark my way will find.



“I have learned that if you must leave a place that you have lived in and loved and where all your yesteryears are buried deep, leave it any way except a slow way, leave it the fastest way you can. Never turn back and never believe that an hour you remember is a better hour because it is dead. Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance.”
Beryl Markham, West with the Night
