the road

i open the gates, and immediately feel the sun beating down on my neck

the sensation of heat coursing through my body like wildfire

as my feet begin to pick a direction

grains of sand and rock stubbornly wedge themselves between my toes

causing me to walk awkwardly and uncomfortably

painfully revealing that although I am of this land

i was not born in this land
