Just Someone Else


I was asked where
I thought I was going,
what destination
I had in mind.
I studied maps,
left a trail of crumbs
to lead me home,
was lost for years
before I began
to find my way,
alone.
Now I've arrived,
it seems impossible
I didn't know
this was the place
I was meant to find.
How could I have missed
this sign so many times,
not seen you waiting,
thought you were
just someone else,
I'd left behind?
