Stranger In A Strange Land - Poem by Bob Oldfield

I arrive
Tired but exhilarated
Full of anticipation
A new beginning
Life starting again.
Easy, huh?

Inner voice one
Questions the wisdom
Of walking
Into the unknown

Inner voice two whispers
Give it time
Let it grow
Draw from the well
Quench the thirst
To return
