It’s A Long Way To The End Of The Road

Srini in a Thai village

In response to the post with the same pic on Srini‘s blog

It’s a long way to the end of the road

My wheels turn on tirelessly
On one side, the world as I know it
Calls out to me enchanting in its various delights
And on the other the lure of the unknown
Whispers secrets to my heart that my ears cannot hear

I sigh for a moment
Turn from left to right
Precariously balanced between the two
Excruciating, beautiful indecision
And my pedals start to slow

But my wheels run on
Painful conflicts regardless
And carry me on
Till I wrench myself away from these siren songs
And with another sigh, start to move again

It’s a long way to the end of the road
But it is in sight
And when I get there,
There’ll be another horizon to follow
The road runs on

It’s a long way to the end of the road
And I stop to look at the sights by the way
Sometimes I idle along, wondering if you’ll join me on this sojourn
And my wheels carry me on, past myself
And I wave a cheery goodbye to me.
