A Poem about Travel for the Purposes of Learning and Growing Being Overrated.
Traveled the globe armed with a prayer
Hoping what I needed I would find right there
Turning away, leaving what I loved behind
Hoping to death I would like what I’d find
Amazing how hard it is to run
To realize you are the only one
To lay your feet on another man’s land
Falling around just to know where you stand
You can’t rise up ‘til you’ve been down
It’s not sink or swim it’s thrash or drown
I’ll want what I get, I’ll not get what I want
And gratitude’s my only device
Oh I’ve seen all the faces
Explored all the places
I’ve done all the things I had to do
So let’s go home. Let’s go home.
