Travelling together

Travelling together isn’t easy.

We pull in slightly different directions, our attention caught by varied interests. Or slowing down and speeding up at different rates.

Our imperfections flapping around in the breeze like tattered flags, evident to all. Especially us.

Yet we choose to walk together, investing in gold to mend our cracks.

Because we know we are incomplete without each other. And together we can go further than when we’re alone.

Not them and me, but us.

And not perfect, but walking together.

I wonder, who are you travelling with?
