The Journey

I had to go a wandering,
leave everything behind me
I had to find the reason for my life.

I had to go a-seeking
tracing ancient pathways.
My lonely journey cut me like a knife.

I had to scale the mountains
of passion and possessions.
I had to trawl the grave of poverty.

But still my soul was urging me
to keep upon that pathway,
the only one to set my spirit free.

I could not look to others
to help me on my journey.
The task was mine and mine alone...
So many nights in torment,
so many painful daybreaks
so many times I cried out
To go home.

But now I have a new song.
A different new perspective,
a blessed new awareness of my role.

It's been a long hard journey
from that aching inner yearning
not too long to go now
till I'm home!
Listen to Poem...
