I Fought

As a young child
I stood upon the shore
staring across the waters
wondering
wishing
I knew what was on the other side.
As a teenager
I was told what a girl could do
should do
was expected to do
I wondered why the rules were so different.
As a young woman
I married a man
who did not love me
who controlled me
who dominated me
who damn near destroyed me.
I fought to get free
I fought to break the chains
I fought to reclaim my life
I fought once more 
for the wanderlust in my heart.
Now I am here
in the waning years of my life
once more upon the shore
ready to lay my weary bones down
to slow down
to remember
the travels I fought so hard for.
