To Face Yourself - Poem by Wayne Falconer

You might climb highest mountain top
stand upon some cliff peak plateau cloud rock
walk some lovers country tranquil walkway
have yourself nature enchanting free day
but remember still you return to face yourself.

You might leave your street, suburb or ancient home
take yourself holiday away play or reality zone
to some country with green pastures faraway
holiday work love or play whose to say
but remember still you return to face yourself.

You might like to take in fave movie show
watch the Hollywood glitter dream merchants glow
perhaps go to Disneyland to embrace fantasy land
count your dollars and say oh I'm lucky card hand
but remember still you return to face yourself.

You might try anew philosophy or religious trip
whatevers in vogue or maybe considered hip
become scholar, alcoholic, writer, sportsman or schemer
maybe poet, artist, sculpture, storyteller and dreamer
but remember still you return to face yourself.

You might change your looks, face or game
maybe there's lure of work, money perhaps fame
yearn to learn new craft or create mural design
perhaps want to remove mundane from daily time
but remember still you return to face yourself.

You might swap your lovers perhaps for her friend
check out star chart see what might descend
see future in tariff card look long and hard
perhaps live for music and hear poet bard
but remember still you return to face yourself.

You might try drugs, yoga or some meditation
play out mind games seek ego elation
perhaps just change job or find new direction
maybe aim high for possible party election
but remember still you return to face yourself.
