Blue


being alone

has never been an issue

I can explore

and travel

and experience

on my own


being alone

tends to be my normal

when I move

I leave everyone

and everything

behind


my friends

my school

my neighborhood

my room

it all becomes different

new

but still different


being alone

hadn’t bothered me

I actually liked it

until I was gone

completely gone

and I knew

nobody


from Hawaii to

Texas to

Georgia to

Virginia to

Nebraska

I’ve gotten around


and every time

I leave

a part of me stays


in my old friends

in my old school

in my old neighborhood

in my old room

in my old life


that part of me

that part of who I was

and who I’m not

remains

in the places

that I’m not


and every time I go

people ask me

why

do you leave?

where

are you going?

can’t you stay

just a little longer?


I feel obligated

to explain

that my dad

he fights

for our freedom

which makes us move

which makes me leave


it isn’t a chore

it isn’t a vacation

but it’s a part of who I am


my heart yearns

for home

but it also

yearns for change


moving

is my home

that sense of curiosity

of adventure

of optimism

it exists in me


not because of circumstance

not because of location

but because of each new place

and each new day

being an opportunity

to branch out


my blood runs blue

the blue represents

my sadness

when I leave

my peace

when I’m gone

and my father

and the air force

and the country

he fights for


regardless of

where I am

in the world

I know I belong

because

the veins of the world

the pumping heart

of our country

run blue
