Av og På
Back and forth
out and in
A disjointed Schengen dance.
It plays like memories
out of order
Along the way there is magic,
surprises, stresses, and disappointments,
moments of enlightenment, clarity and joy,
moments of hopelessness
and (one moment) of despair.
I am privileged to have had this journey.
That doesn’t mean that it was easy.
Wrestling with uncertainty.
Convincing myself of stability.
Collapsing, at moments.
I was brave to take the risk to begin with.
The signs seemed clear.
My own worries threw rocks on the road.
The road that opened up
in ways beyond wildest expectations.
