For Sunday Muse #36 and The Sunday Whirl Wordle 384

***
The call of the future
comes from across the border
bringing hope to this poor, tired pilgrim-
slouched beneath the weight of an open promise
and the remains of failures past.

Tomorrow is uncertain, not promised
but staying still wastes today
so with intent I risk safety to seek
the joy beyond the flood plains of seven rivers
and the welcome of a home where
hypocrisy is no more.
