[Poem][To Have Been Around]


To Have Been Around

To the tallest towers and the lowest sink holes,

To the farthest reaches of the known world,

To know you have been where few have traveled,

To have touched something so few have felt.

Your words could never do when your eyes have seen justice,

Your words fall short of description in the midst of the fantastic,

Your words cannot contend the photos taken of breathless awe,

Your words conclude what should never be finished

Walk further than you could ever imagine

Walk to where the world never seems to end

Walk with your eyes open, and closed, and open again

Walk and run and pause and admire beyond what you can see

Never stop moving forward

Never concede to finding the end

Never be satisfied with what is in front of your face

Never be ashamed to have been around
