    Wandering
    The earth
    Observing the
    Degradation
    Degradation
    Degradation
    Degrading facets of life
    People no longer care
    Arbitrary actions
    Anarchist ideals
    What has this world come to?

    Wandering
    And wondering
    If this is all life is about
    No
    There must be more
    For it this is all
    Then it’s a sad epitaph
    That we cannot leave a legacy
    To those who may come after us
    If there is any after we have gone

    Wandering
    Looking for a home
    Yet finding none
    No open door
    No kind smile
    No helpful hand
    Reminds me of that night
    In Bethlehem
    No room at the inn

    Wandering
    Taking in all I see
    As the cold air of the night
    Whips my body up and down
    Causing me to gather my cloak
    Around me
    I keep wandering
    Looking for a better way
    Can’t accept the fate
    This world
    And its societal ills
    Has deemed for this man

    Wandering
    Never satisfied
    There must be a purpose
    For one
    Born out of due season
    Alone
    Friendless not by circumstance
    But by choice
    For I would not want a friend
    To share my journeys
    Through a decaying wasteland
    Of humanity

    Wandering
    Never stopping
    Just observing
    Noting in my journal
    For others to read
    So that they may know
    That they all may know
    What to expect
    When it’s their turn to wander.
