Carve out time from our busy routine

Something new, that we had not previously seen

Such experiences make for excellent discussion

In a gathering or over a cup of coffee

Superficial are these, not a true expression

Of what constitutes our identity.

*

To find solace, we need to direct

Our minds inwards, within our souls

Experience the quietitude and accept

Ourselves, in a designated role.

  3. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t
