The Lonely Wanderer
By: Eve Estelle
To see the world whole.
Is your life unraveling?
As you strive to reach your goal.
This way of life is not for all -
In fact it's quite obnoxious.
Work all day, work all night - until you can't recall.
Finally at bedtime, you're all but unconscious;
Held awake by a buzzing brain,
You cannot get to sleep.
Why abuse your life..
..For thoughts so mundane?
There's more to life than work and marriage,
Living at home with a wife and carriage.
This fact is known by a lonely few,
Who find our lives deserve review.
We strive for peace, we desire perfection,
But is what we need more reflection?
One who knows the value of life,
Can begin to question if he's living it right.
Those who know have peace eternal,
Drifting along the tides of time;
Those who don't are in Hell's inferno,
Searching for a guiding sign.
Did you say you'd dreamt of traveling?
Not surprising, it's a common goal.
Those lonely few know all too well
That life can take its toll.
Get out of this unhealthy habit
Of remaining and conforming;
They say that travel's good,
For body, mind, and soul.
