I Trusted The North Star

As a kid,
each mile
I pedaled
from home
grew the world

My parents
helped me
grow the world
by taking
summer vacations
to national parks
all over
the lower
the adjacent
Canadian provinces
and a special trip
over the Pacific
to Hawaii.

When I reached
my majority
and purchased
my first car
I expanded
the world
to the limits
of my courage
by taking jobs
in nine different states
over the years.

All this growth
then sped up
on my last move
where I
stopped short
of Moab, Utah
and landed in
where I met
and stayed.
