Millions of Miles

Daily Prompt: Millions

I was running away from something

at the same time, I was running to something.

I’ve traveled what feels like

millions of miles but still didn’t find

what I was looking for,

happiness.

After years of running I

finally realized

I never needed to run.

I had to make the most

of what I was given.

I shouldn’t have dreaded

the dark clouds and thunder

but should’ve looked forward

to the bright sun that awaited

me on the other side.

I didn’t need to move at all

I just needed to know that

God is here with me always

and that happiness is not found

by running to or from something.

I need to find happiness

inside myself and I’ll never again

have to travel millions of miles.
