redetermined. / by Sarah Kakusho

I race against the wind
Undaunted and unfettered
Advancing with purpose
Carrying ideals so romantic
Chasing after dreams so distant
All on a path, nonexistent
Yet so real

May cold gusts or tropical winds
Throw me off-course
May rain or hail or the sun’s burning rays
Make travels all the more difficult
But, may nature’s wonders and life’s small gifts
Continue to fuel this heart

I race against the wind
So may adversity lift me from beneath my wings
Higher, with resolve.
