Honor

High respect, esteem.

All my life, I've longed to be.

Not quite sure what exactly.  

Today I walked longer than usual.  As I walked I thought about them like I usually do.  I couldn't tell if the walking was helping to keep my thoughts contained, or if my thoughts were keeping my momentum moving forward.  Step after step.  Thought after thought, I walked.  Honor your Mother and Father, that's what I was taught.  Honor your Mother and Father.  I thought that it meant to be respectful, hold your tounge, don't talk back.  Get good grades, don't ask questions, do what your told.  Make them proud, don't disappoint.

Today I walked longer than usual.  As I walked I thought about them like I usually do.  I thought about the plans I've made.  The steps that I've taken, that steps that I have yet to take.  My thoughts aren't clear but one thing I know.  My minds made up, and I need to go.  Honor your Mother and Father.  That's what I'll do.  My thoughts don't lie, I know the truth.  It won't be easy but that's OK, they'd do it for me.  They have in fact -  All of my life.  They've been there for me, step after step.  Thought after thought.

I walked longer than usual today.  Every step, every thought.  Honor your Mother and Father.   

I walked in a circle.  I'm back where I began.  Step after step.  Thought after thought. 

Not quite sure why exactly... 

It leads me back to them.

Honor.
