Run To Not From

Greener grass on the other side.
That which is actually unknown
Appeals more than the struggle
So familiar and etched into bone.
Shiny adventure and change,
Weighted by responsibility.
Crossing the bridge exacting
Beyond calculated measure.
To stay, exhausting and absurd,
To go, a must to go.
Never a simple journey,
Not even for the surefooted.
Determination and will allies,
Not to run and to escape,
But rather to venture to
Instead of away from.
