Poem 5: The Journey – Jacinta Noel

There’s no one here to comfort me, no rose tinted love, no spectacles to reassure me

Jacinta Noel is currently studying at the University of Exeter and has a passion for poetry. In her own words, the art form provides Jacinta with an opportunity to ‘reflect and look back on my journey and be able to develop as a young individual.’ We are very thankful for Jacinta’s decision to share her talents, and we are sure you will appreciate her work.

Poem 5: The journey

As I read through the lines I look

Within

Searching to find myself amongst the confusion; the constant discussion.

Jumbled words. Constant echo –

Ringing.

But I look deep and within

Me 

I find a sense of hope – a sense of blurred emotion

The real me? 

There’s no one here to comfort me, no rose tinted love, no spectacles to reassure me 

Maybe that’s a good thing.

This journey is for me to travel and go down…

The lane… lone road.

Without fear I begin, so – 

Let me be. Leave me alone. 

Please. 

I ask kindly, as I drift,

Float,

Rock, towards…

Destiny.

Jacinta Noel, University of Exeter
