A golden bow...

sits atop my finger.
It's mishapen from wear.
I purchased it this way—
for a mere $40 it's "tied" to my soul:
a reminder to never forget.
The things that I've dreamt,
the things that I desire,
A reminder of where I came from—
and what's to come.

Let's not forget:
vinyl and the first kiss,
throwing caution to the wind,
the first heartbreak,
living abroad,
elevators and origami,
the second heartbreak,
my family away from family,
the climbs–and the falls.

This is where I am.
