the traveler

why am i always leaving
always with my bag packed
always with my keys ready
that eternal sign
of needlessness
perceived as strength
i wish i could unlearn
that habit
why am i always
ready to up and quit
throw my hands up
and efforts to the wind, well
it was never up to me, anyways
or is it
how about taking a permanent stand
a decisive move to say
in affirmation
is what i believe in, this
is what i am here for, and this
for once
is why i am not
running away.
