I want to go somewhere

Exotic, beautiful, wondrous

But the problem is I would have to go

Travel, drive, fly

Hours of monotony

Mounds of money


Isn’t this the modern dilemma?

You are told life is all about an adventure

But there is a price to be paid

So I get to choose to be a nothing

Or a somebody who is exhausted and broke

Discovering that all of these travels 

Aren’t always what they are made to be

If I don’t change what is really going on


I have to go beyond this time

Touch eternity

Eternity traveling in me

All these things take peace to see

Peace to hear

To know

This is where I want to go

  2. Thought-provoking, as ever. I guess I wonder if there is a balance. I know that a lot of who I am now has come from people and places where I have lived and worked (not as a visitor, but for years).

    Someone told me the story of a beginning Buddhist who journeyed into the jungle in Burma to visit a famous and very old monk, and suffered a few hardships on the way. The monks said, “Travel is so difficult when you take your body, isn’t it?” Two sides of the coin I guess.
