ON THE ROAD

 Life is fast

Days are slow

Friends abound

Yet you are friendless

Pavement

Cars

Ships

Trains

Lead you

Take you

Across continents

Across seas

Through dark dens

Through strange cities

Where night never settles

To the end

To society’s edge

Where you leave

Where you enter

The great stillness

You find there waiting for you

Patiently

Quietly

Your one and only

True self

You empty your hands

You empty your pockets

For you no longer need anything

For you are home
