The Traveler

The Traveler

Walking through life
knowing deep in my soul
where I was meant to be
Thoughts and actions
not those of the pack
I could clearly see
I did not understand
the path for my journey
Instinctively, I would arrive
It was as if I were acting
in a play, and the final scene
I would contrive
Heights of happiness
Depths of depression
Wondering what I’d become
Confused by the wait
Never giving up hope
Knowing what would come
At times despairing
Thinking I might be wrong
Just another lost soul
With age comes serenity
and needed patience
Waiting for the perfect role
See it and believe it
Visualize it, breathe it
Imagine it and it will be mine
Have I lived this life before? 
Knowing fulfillment
or did I just see the sign?

NaPoWriMo - Day 3 - April 3rd

Today’s prompt is based in a poem by Larry Levis called
“The Two Trees.” It is a poem that seems to meander,
full of little digressions, odd bits of information, but
fundamentally, it is a poem that takes time.
I’d like to challenge you to write something that involves
a story or action that unfolds over an appreciable
length of time.
