Lonesome Travellers: A Poem

Updated on September 3, 2017

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

Long is our journey though memory makes it short

and even longer are circles within our comfort zone

with infrequent little trips out of it, all back and forth

but in truth, we make that every daring step alone.

Blinded by this need to be pampered by approval crap

we don't see in loneliness a blessed condition of growing

which places full weight of responsibility onto our own lap

so we prefer sharing our burden with others as we are going.

Have you ever spent some of that magic time alone

while watching ocean sunset or beauty of a flower

with no words in existence and ever known

to express that experience in its full power.

Those were times of divine knowing

how it's up to us alone to nurture our best

and we always reap what we alone are sowing

with each and every adversity just being a growing test.

Then we see the truth of our travelling companions

and we don't use them for crutches on our life's quest

but help them out of their own deep, self-created canyons

by inspiring them on their own journey that's lonely but blessed.
