30 Poems, 30 Days 2021: Directions (Day 30)

Photos of New York City & Corpus Christi by Christy V.

I’ve gone the four cardinal directions: North, South, East, and West.

I’ve gone four ordinal directions: northwest, northeast, southwest, and southeast, and the two vertical directions: up and down.

As well as two relative directions: in and out.

I’ve flown and driven to travel and move. All changed me for good.

If you want to find me, or most of all, my heart

You don’t have to look to the western sky

I’m everywhere I’ve been and dream to be

Start with the city at the center of Texas, at least to me

Move to two states unwillingly as a child

Traveled to three states, one is my favorite, another comes close

Travel to U.S. territories and out of the country

Many times to Mexico, but hope to expand horizons

Set sights to Europe, especially an island of Greece

Live in five cities, but visit more

Travel to Mexico City, but maybe someday Washington, DC.

There’s many cities, states, and counties left to explore

While there’s magic in Florida, do you know my favorite cities are?

First where my family lives and where we came from

And most of all, within New York and Texas

Focus south, that’s where the stars are,

Where I came, where I live, and the place of my past, present, future

The first started my story, with a wonderful riverwalk

The second makes my dreams come true, by the bay, the sea, and islands

And the third changes me always, build on islands

To unlock why, you have to read my words

Someday everyone will
