‘Away I Go,’ A Poem by Sawhney

Away I Go BeLatina Latinx

I will sail with the winds!

I boldly declare

As they come to take me

here and there

they move me


Why does my head feel sad

While my heart glows

with the possibilities to come?



Away I go

I cry out, grieving

for the experiences I won’t have

I give joy to my curiosity

that rises

on the high winds

I feel a loss

and I feel out of control

I was never in control, to begin with,

I remember.

So, I must move on

and usher in a new life

Away, I go



On the winds

I searched for throughout this life.
