Anita Mechler: A Road Beckons

The road to you beckons.

 

I saw you from afar

Wanting to know your edges

your angles

the length of your reach.

 

I went on a solo adventure

to find you;

it is still a revolutionary thing

for a woman to travel alone

It’s not that I don’t recognize the dangers,

it’s that I can’t miss out

on what scares other people

into inaction.

 

I never regret these moments

even if they lead to my death

because I always get to witness some kind of beauty

in or outside of myself.
