The Seeker


The road is dusty and his back hurts
The rider takes a break and ponders
Over a hot cup of tea on a hot day

Those deep questions on life
Of what matters and what not
Life and its meaning, its purpose persay

Why am I here all alone ?
What trouble, what anxiety ?
Of setbacks and heartbreak.

He seeks those unanswered questions
On the road for often in his thoughts
A voice resonates and calls him on the road

He washes his face, pays for the tea with a smile
And off he goes listening the machine hum
That familiar tune but newer words

The road is mysterious and long
He rides patiently for what he seeks
Is on the road
Slowly unwinding on the winding roads

  1. Reminds me of life being a long extended road and how is living creatures should never give up, or give in. This poem is inspiring!! Spread Love😍

  2. Wrestling with those questions while riding would either be awesome or scary! Great poem. And thanks so much for the follow. I’ll be back to spend more time. πŸ™‚

  3. Please look up … Tiziano Terzani … “The end is my beginning”
    And his last interview … on youtube…
    My thoughts?…
    The Himallaya … a mithical place.
    One day my friend … one day!

  4. Basically we all are travelers on this planet earth but most of us do not know where we are heading to and why ? Modern Science has made our journey comfortable and today we are able to travel around the earth in approximately 40 hours but it does not explain the purpose. Spirituality begins where modern Science ends & has answers to all such questions.
