1000 Miles

I am 1000 miles from where I belong

from all civilization. All I see

for miles on end

is blacktop and the rhythmic white lines

that is the never-ending spiral staircase

It is 1000 miles of emptyness before

the 1000 miles of sights and sounds

1000 miles isnt that far ......

is it ?

How many thousands of miles do

each person think of travelling

before they make

the most important decision

to take the first step?

After all

which is more difficult to accomplish

1000 miles in reality

or the mere thought of the journey

Great poem, really made me think......once your poems start to build up in number even moreso, you should think of getting some of your works published
