Inspiration comes when it feels like it

That feeling if I stray

If I stray and see the world, if I head out and explore,

What will I call home?

I walk and paint my steps, I go and I’ll continue.

From life they came, to dust they go, leaving traceless thought.

If I wander and if I see, will what I’ve seen be lost?

And if my thoughts excel from then, will ‘then’ cease to exist?

If my expectation changes and if what I’m expected fails.

If its essence still is beautiful, I’ll cherish mixed relief.

If questions find their answers, those that have been there all along,

Should I not have asked?

What’s hidden should be found, what’s  found then should be lost.

Not to seek, just to remember. Not to know, but just to feel.

If I’m inclined to lose my way, and if I refuse to find it,

Will my road bend on its own, and lay out trails to follow?

If I stray and see the world, I know I will be lost.

I’m good at getting lost, I’m bad at being found, I’m worst at coming home.

To stay would be to give away,

And I can’t yet accept to leave,

That feeling if I stray.


If life is a circle


If life is a circle, we should keep walking on.

If we meet at the start and if we said our goodbyes,

If we keep walking ahead as our ways spread out more,

If we notice what happens, that life will go on.

At that point we’ll persist, we’ll keep walking, we’ll keep pushing on.

We’ll be walking so long that we lose sight of what’s real and what seems like a dream.

But as we are living,

Good times and bad times,

Laughing and crying,

Our ways will come closer and closer each day.

When we meet in the middle, can we hit ‘pause’ on our lives?

Can we stop walking, can we stand still?

Just for a little bit?

Let’s take a minute to recharge before we continue,

Before we spread out to come closer again.

‘Cause if life is a circle, whether it’s short or it’s long,

We’ll keep meeting in the middle, if we keep walking on.


Just a little bit straight from the heart 🙂
