Getting There

Mind racing, but it’s time to relax.

Dizzying thoughts swirl, while motion sways,

All this movement throws me off all balance,

And the body surrenders.

Finally, finding footing once more,

But still the mind pounds, and the unease remains.

Did I forget something;

did I leave anything undone;

What if I forgot something…

But there’s no going back now.

Too many miles from home,

And no way to fix things at work for two weeks;

How will I survive this time away?

Will I make it through my anxiety of travel?

Breath in. Breath out. Repeat.

Maybe relaxation will begin when we arrive;

Maybe then this weight will finally lift.
