The Lure of Travel

Traveling-it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. – Ibn Batuta

The first stirrings of impatience are starting to grow

Within me, making me restless, and I fully know

Why this is happening-grounded I have been

For longer than usual, therefore I am keen

To spread my proverbial wings and fly away

From the city where I live, along an unexplored way

It matters not how far or where I go-

Traveling anywhere will lift my spirits low..

 

 

My comfort zone, my haven I need to leave

It is time to shake up what I believe

Soak in experiences new, challenge ideas old

Travel has the property of making me bold

Just hundred miles away or across the ocean

I approach travel with the same devotion

 

I love to get lost in anonymity

In an unexplored, unknown new city

 

Where I have the liberty to reinvent

Myself, there is nothing to prevent

Me from  projecting myself in a new light

My improved persona is enigmatic and bright

New stories I hear, and tuck them away

In my mind, for bringing out some other day..

 

 

Travel brings to my mind peace and content

This privilege to travel on a whim is Godsent

When I pack my bags, the eager anticipation

Of a trip galvanizes me into action…
