no place to go or to get to

no place to go or to get to

this message
we most secretly
long to hear..
but we weave
in traffic lanes
beating the light..
destination delayed
is self denied..
and that pause 
once arrived
becomes not then
a destination
but a hesitation
searching our map
for stop is ahead..
these are essentials
to build a life
and we forget
that hidden longing:
no place to get to..
frightening for some
but it seems
a life full and lived
spends time in
that place..
so for practice
the next stoplight
might do...!
