First Step

I've taken the first step
To making a change
To my story
Peace, tranquility
I hope are what awaits me

To walk around
In summer clothes
In winter
A pen in my left
My journal in my right
Sand between my toes
And anywhere else
Sand is wont to go

To see faces
Aged by time
Some I'll recognize
Will they know mine?

To meet cousins
Born long after I'd gone
To greet them in person
Not just some random
Online attention
From a stranger
Thousands of miles
And maybe I'll stay
A while

I sit here waiting impatiently
For a response to a question
I've asked,

'So what do you think, Papa?'
