Poem - East's Abode

The poem “East’s Abode” was inspired by my ongoing journey of self-discovery. I’m currently in a realm of non-binary regarding gender identity. I may stay there, or I may continue onto a binary state. Time will tell.

East’s Abode

The journey moves every on
with the west now left behind
and the goal of east’s abode
lays beyond the earthly curve
progress marked in baby steps
or the lunge to seek an end
each serves a purpose in itself
discovery made in due course

that in-between of status gained
becomes a mystery to be solved
a question mark for the world
to condemn or to bless
indecision seems the way
while the self is explained
neither cold nor of hot
the temperature is just right

there is no schedule to be met
the seconds tick into years
or the years become the now
all will happen in its time
even while the finish line
moves away to eastern realms
with the quest never done
to find the self is enough.
