Road Trip

No matter what route we take, we always end up lost when we do not follow our heart.

Road Trip

Ten thousand miles ago

Fooled into thinking

That this journey

Would end up

In some wonderful place.

Only to be cruising

So many miles later

Never seeming to arrive

At the elusive

Perfect destination,

To which this

Excursion must lead.

Taking stock of

The opportunity cost,

On never having

Settled momentarily

To etch that niche

In the rock of ages.

When having traveled

That chosen route

Never pursuing truth

And knowing blows in

Sparkles of cold sweat

Feeling lost for not

Following your heart
