stride

i’ll fill you in
with what i know
what i seek
what i truly desire
in the palm of my hand
on the back of my neck
the memories i choose to forget
along with troubles i can’t help but remember
i’ll tell you all of it
with the trust you’ve instilled
my lips go loose
as i reveal it all
nothing remains hidden
i don’t have grandiose adventures
where i lose my way
only to find i was on the right path
the entire time
no, i stay content
with my surroundings
only changing in frustration
in the lackluster of it all
with the wind pushing against
regardless of direction
with all that’s been said
about the brevity of life
why waste telling you the mundane
i want to make the next step count
to exercise all effort and ambition
to stride on with you
