Experiences

pink wax orchidsA variety of experiences we tend to seek-

Through travel, concerts, or culinary indulgence

Striving to widen our horizons in ways unique

Enriching our lives with cultural abundance

*

We keep hoping external experiences

Will quench the longing of our soul

Finer things that appeal to our senses

Will somehow make our broken selves whole..

*

So we shell out money, hard-earned

Carve out time from our busy routine

Find these experiences, are happy we learnt

Something new, that we had not previously seen

*

Such experiences make for excellent discussion

In a gathering or over a cup of coffee

Superficial are these, not a true expression

Of what constitutes our identity.

*

To find solace, we need to direct

Our minds inwards, within our souls

Experience the quietitude and accept

Ourselves, in a designated role.
