Travelling


TRAVELLING


When
he travelled

His
thoughts remained

At
home.

 

He
often felt

Estranged
from all

He saw

 

But
seldom

Dwelt
upon

His
own shortcomings.

 

Sometimes
his thoughts

Took
flight, but then he felt

Unable
to depart

 

From
his fixed

Certainties.

Well
travelled,

 

He
discovered

The
value

Of
remaining here.
