Default The a word


Iím moving again.
Four different countries,
the fifth one is just around the corner.
Iím scared, excited.
Torn.
I donít know if what I want
is what the society wants me to want
or if thatís actually what I want.
Is the thing Iím expected to be and do
actually something I want to accomplish
or have I been mind washed to think I want that?
I am moving again.
I am starting over.
The fifth country.
Who knows,
maybe the fifth time is a charm.
Right?

I moved thirty-six times in forty-eight months, after my wife disappeared on me with my son and everything we owned.

Moving isn't bad; it's the not knowing where you're going that hurts.

A Taoist might say follow the Way and you will arrive but the mimentyou do you will not know where you are. Of course they would say by then you won't care.
