Hello fellow explorers! Once again, I’d like to bless you with another free poem, to give you a further taster of my debut poetry book, “Proceed With Awesome” (Available here).
This poem is dedicated to those of us who love to travel, meet new people, learn something new about the World or themselves, embrace unfamiliar experiences, plus to those who appear to seek ALL available knowledge and experiences. …good hunting!
Travelling is something we all seem to do,
Either physically or exploring the depths of the mind,
Whether it’s miles or thoughts that you cover,
You can’t do it all in a single lifetime.
Just think how many square metres this World has,
Too many for any one mind to perceive,
It’s impossible for someone to visit each metre,
And know that they’ve been everywhere when they leave.
All of the knowledge and information around us,
Could never be absorbed or viewed by one brain,
Those amazing facts of existence and culture,
For one person to know, would send them insane.
Complex data and ancient mysteries,
That place or fact the map or media missed,
Secrets, experiences and Government cover-ups,
Put together would form an infinite list.
There are people you shall never walk past,
There are things you shall never think of or see,
Things that don’t interest you, so you miss out,
Wisdom you want that is never released.
This planet amazes me with what it contains,
I know I can never know its full contents,
Questions I have that shall never be answered,
Things that I’ve read, but don’t get what they meant.
If you know everything then there are no surprises,
Being a know all, you’d have nothing to seek,
I’m glad that this is not at all possible,
As you’d be detained and labelled a freak.
We’re a small, compact ball of information,
There is so much more away from our planet,
Stars, Galaxies and the unknown Universe,
We want this knowledge, but could we handle it?
