The Road Ahead


The road ahead is unknown. It may appear to stretch out in front of me, empty and bare, but in truth, I can’t actually see very far. In 5 minutes, at the most, I can run farther than I can see.
But my road only half matters to me. My heart feels like a ping-pong ball, one minute thinking about my road and one minute thinking about his road.
We will end up at the same place one day, but his road looks so different now. I can’t grasp my reality and his reality at the same time. My brain can’t hold all that has happened. It can’t be in two places at once. Sometimes I wonder about my future, but mostly I wonder about his present, his present and that moment almost 10 weeks ago when the road we saw straight ahead changed drastically.
