Move On…

Woman with luggage, image copyright Raul Lieberw

Pack them bags,

Just pack them and leave,

To a distant land,

Among unknown faces,

Untraced roads and,

Unmapped contours,

Trace the lines of your freedom,

Leave behind the clutter,

Open the mind to beauty,

Stand in the middle of a road,

Stare at the pattern,

Turn it in kaleidoscope,

Read, dream,

But don’t think,

Soak in the anonymity,

Brush aside inhibitions,

Go for a stroll,


On the seashore,

Listen to the waves,

Distant chirping of birds,

Just be there,

As if you are alone in the world,

No friends,

No enemies,

Cut the ropes holding you back,

Lurch forward,

Dive into the waters,

It’s okay if you can’t swim,

Reach the bed of the sea,

Bury your past there,

When you surface back,

Make sure you have,

A clean slate.
