She whispers my name... Only I can hear

Wandering

Not for nothing
Do my thoughts wander
Seeking always
The eternal flame

Not for nothing
Do I ponder
The reason we come
And we go
Are the same

so true ... me think they are the same...

and sometimes i feel the wandering and the seeking are more important than the flame...
a path more dear than the destination...
one might call me stupid and ask what the path is for...
or what the wandering is for...

but this is just the way i feel and to me it seems logical ...
feel the path and the destination are the same...

oh sorry i'm babbling...
this poem is a thought-provoking piece of beauty...

Thanks for the poem. I feel depressed tonight and now I think I can rest well. Also, I watched the miniature earth video and think it's profound.

Frankl believes in this. That it's all meaningless in you can find purpose in it all - even in suffering ... especially in wandering, more so in wondering - and of course - in pondering. :)
