Debate

DSC05489I am Grounded, you are Wanderlust

Let us have a debate if you must

I am a realist, I live in the present

While the drab reality you resent

You inhabit a world of fantasy

From obligations you try to break free

I choose to keep my roots planted

I don’t take my home for granted

Consciously I’ve made a choice

To disregard that inner voice

That instigates me to fly away

To such temptation I won’t fall prey

*

In quick rebuttal Wanderlust spoke

In dreams of distant lands I like to soak

Traveling to new places gives me the thrill

Of discovery, as being home never will

You are mistaken-future is not where I reside

Live spontaneously in the present, I decide

Shirking my duties is not my plan

Traveling makes my horizons expand

You are at peace with yourself at home

My restless soul, though, needs to roam

You may have this life figured out

I travel to understand what life is about

I made man explore new lands through history

You made them settle there and build cities

Each of us I think does occupy

A special place under the sky

We complement each other, I think

We are joined through a common link!
