Go, Be, See.

That is fine for a bit,
Walkabout take in all of it..
Coming home means what?

A place to rest,
Or a place to hide?

We’re meant to be free.

That is how it should be,
To be free.
What is that?
We shall see.

Walt, we may be free of many things -- but psychological baggage is always imprinted into our gray matter, our memory bank -- it isn't going away -- so with that, we much each of us contend -- this is another write with a great lesson and a reminder of the realities of life -- thanks, I enjoyed it -- may love and peace bring you great joy my friend -- JMW

We are never totally free, for our active minds have too many memories that either make us happy or haunt us with sad events or things we did wrong. Yet there is much to enjoy if we let ourselves accept the changes that occur as we age. I always find something to do that pleases me,and I manage to stay happy within myself. Fine poem,Walt!
