The helmet visor glitters as the first rays of sun
fall from the far right of the horizon.
Golden light shines through a pair of brown eyes.
Wind howls through the ears,
and the only other sound is that of a 500 cc engine
propelling a bike towards the Sun.
I am riding on a road
that runs through the heart of a desert.
The sunlight deceives my eyes
and I see gold everywhere.
As I ride through the desert,
into the golden sunrise,
I’m reminded of the beautiful past.
A past that has brought me closer to my dreams
and made me what I am today.
It’s taken me years to get here,
And it was never about the destination.
All that mattered,
The Journey !
