The Unguided Traveller

Time is the one thing that heals,
As the traveller journeys through unknown worlds,
This is what it thinks.
Through the last few years and months,
The traveller walks on,
Passing cities, people and beauty.
Gaping at every sight it sees,
For everything is full of wonder and beauty.
Simply because there is no answer,
To everything in this world,
Only lies and interpretations.
Perhaps this is what the traveller seeks,
Answers, the truth and a better understanding.
Although many of the traveller's questions,
Have unfathomably been answered.
Yet, still the traveller travels.
Every step taken boldly ahead of the other,
Sometimes quickened, sometimes slows down.
Unknowing what is leading itself,
The traveller is alone wherever it goes.
Only its own shadow to welcome and say hello.
Unimaginably, the traveller does not mind,
All the loneliness and solitude,
But welcomes it with open arms.
If you happen to see the unguided traveller,
Know one thing,
Life is but one long travel around the world.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
