On the Roads

The Road to Knowledge
they proclaim proudly.
Sell, sell, sell.
I’m done buying three-day seminars
The knowledge I have
seems to rot me to the center.

Where is the road to peace?
I search for the lost road.
Sometimes anxious,
sometimes I know
I will make it home some day.
And then I am calm.
When I am calm,
I want to give my peace
to everyone for free.
And I do not wonder
if people think me stupid.

    I’m done buying three-day seminars
    The knowledge I have
    seems to rot me to the center.

    This resonated with me.

    “sometimes I know
    I will make it home some day.”
    sigh.
    Something about the word “home” in any context makes me want to weep.

      Home. I’m always searching.
