I Wondered Why I Wandered...?

A Continual Saga of a "Younger-than-Now" Poet from the Highly-Esteemed State of Texas proclaiming more Poetic-able Prose using just pure wit

Have you Wondered…Where you Wandered?


I wondered of all I have wandered…and was a fun journey for me…

It brings back the places I went to…and the ones I’ve yet to see.

I wondered of places seen long ago …I wondered of places seen within days…

I wondered at the roads that I’ve been down…at the sights that still amaze.

Have you wondered…where you wandered…what have you seen along your journey?

Look at the places you’ve been…and see they’ve made you...what you’ve come to be.

I want to wander about more…there is so much out there for me to see…

I want to know this ol’ world a little better…It has a lot more to show me.

I want to take that distant highway…I want to sail on open sea…

I want to wonder while I wander…I want to wander…and be free.

How is it I wander for a lifetime…And still not see all there is to see for me?

How can I wait when so much is out there…I wonder what next I’ll see?

Have you wondered…where you wandered…have you stopped to take a look?

Have you journeyed out from all you know…Journey’s end is not found in a book.

Travel from the place you know…Search for something new…

Find a world waiting for you…different from all you knew.

Find that distant horizon…Where the Sun still sets in front of you.

Wander to the places you have dreamed...make all your dreams come true.


I Went Out Wandering...



I look back at all the places I have been…and would like to go again….

I have grown to love these wonders…I wandered to…like the wind.

They are a bit inside of me…fondness elates of where I’ve been.

I would saddle up or hoist anchor to see them anytime…once again, my friend…

But, only for a moment in time…as I look inside my thoughts slide show…

Then, I look towards my own front door…and tell my feet it’s time to go!

To journey to other lands…or perhaps…something new at the end of the block…

"Journey" begins where I soon find me…"Journey" can begin with no time off the clock.

"Journey" just happens…sometimes we don’t even give it much thought…

I journey to my next place to be…I find myself there with what I brought.

Taking the path before me…or Shall I turn towards a new place I have in mind ?

There is where you will find me…’Til the next place I set out to find.

I have seen places that I wanted to stay…I have stayed at places I wanted to go…

I have had many more wonders that I want to see…yet if I get there…I still won’t know?

I would like to “set-out” towards them…For Hills far away…I come from valley below.

And see from the Mountain…that on my journey…I still have a long, long way to go!

Have you wandered…where you’ve wondered…Have you tracked where you’ve been?

Yes…I wondered…Where all I wandered…But now I am Back Home…Here Again!

Wondered Why I Wandered...

                                                                                                                              

I wonder why I wandered...as I came back here...

I looked at everything that looks so familiar...and it all became clear.

Life is a Journey...Time puts bits and pieces together...like a collage...

And makes your Journey make sense...even hazy days...back in college.

Where have you been...Do you wonder ?

Where will you go next...Do you ponder ?

What have you learned...and what do you take away from each new place ?

Do you think of what importance it has on your life...as it brings a smile to your face ?

Where can you reach back in time to...and pull a picture from your head ?

Where will you be glad you visited...on this planet...before you are dead ?

Where would you go to now...if given a choice...first thing out of bed ?

And as I Wondered ...Why I Wandered...I looked ahead...to what lies ahead...

                                                                                                                                                                                           

Oh...I Wondered...Why I Wandered...and Yet No Real Answer...has ever been said.
