Why Drown This Wilderness ?

In my errant life I roamed to learn the secrets of women and men, of gods and dreams. I lived in wealth and poverty, in fame and calamity. I saw every country of our world, I lived a thousand lives. Many lives I spent, other lives I squandered, for in my life I never traveled, all I did was wander.
Roman Payne

Why drown?
this wilderness
lives inside
so patiently
this emptiness
Why let go ?
of all these

What connection so strong?
Why let go?

Why walk?
on this highland
all of inside
runs constantly
this eagerness
Why not hold on ?
to all these

There's so much to see
Why stop and rest and be not free?

Always Too Eager for the Future

The new man is born too old to tolerate the new world. The present conditions of life have not yet erased the traces of the past. We run too fast, but we still do not move enough. He looks but he does not contemplate, he sees but he does not think. He runs away from time, which is made of thought, and yet all he can feel is his own time, the present. ― Eugenio Montale

Possibilities of many minds
They peep forward in time
Slowly time ticks away
Present becomes Past
Future is Present today

Of all the habits I picked
You were worst and best
I do not present explaining
Why we did what we did
Of all things that I have sad

Every walk was a test
I can still taste presence
Of your perfect defenses
Some things ever escape
Perfectly modeled cages

What is it that I seek?
In these cracks in time
All’s lost and sand
Here I too stand
