Looking for something to cozy up with? Well check out this poem written by one of our very own Prism volunteers, Darcy Pound! Big thank you to her for sharing this with us! 

When you get where you are going

Darcy Pound

Today is one day

Today is one footprint on your path

Today is one moment of your journey

Your life will surely be filled with surprises, blunders, blessings, and stresses

Your journey will end somehow

Your tale will come to a close

Maybe it will end soon

Perhaps the finish line is miles away

One day you will get where you are going

Then you may go somewhere else or possibly bask in the warm comfort of your memories

One day you will get where you are going

and I hope you like it there

I hope your smiles are true and nothing makes you blue unless you want it to

This is my wish for you

I hope dearly that it may come true
