This is Our Triumph (Poetry)

“This is Our Triumph” is a free verse poem about taking control of your own life by choosing your own road. It’s based loosely on the inspiration of a stock photo. 


All bundled up
My bag is packed
Only the clothes on my back
And what’s in my modest pack
Are all that I have
I leave the rest

This is our triumph
To bring only
What we need
To free ourselves
Of the excess
To only be us

This is our triumph
To take this journey
The travel itself
The adventure
The road our home
Wandering yes but not
