So low

Flight is overrated.

Travel, too.

At least when done in a rush,

and the flowers go unnoticed.

 

I have spent oh so many hours

trapped in a metal cage,

whizzing by the neon lights

and listening to nothing.

 

How many memories have I missed?

How many smiles passed by?

Is it worth the cost of all my time,

that oh so precious liberty?

 

I wish I used it better, and did less.

Spent it more on others, than my self.

Used it as it should be used,

not accounted and distributed,

here and there.

 

On the ground I lay, waiting for nothing.

Because here my heart is happy,

so close to its home.

One thought on “So low

  1. Though some never travel and still never bother to smell the roses in their own back yard. Travel is great, but definitely need to learn to appreciate where you come from or youll never experience anything :)
