Comfort of familiarity

DSCN0081I was the one that always lived for

The thrill you get when you explore

Something new, beyond your comfort zone

Unwrap a mystery, befriend the unknown

Throughout my younger years I tried

To accumulate experiences in their scope wide

Constantly tried to venture into realms new

Enjoyed myself thoroughly, regrets I had few

Wandered here and there like a vagabond

My restlessness led me to cross the pond

And settle on the planet’s other side 

To embark on a more exciting ride..


As I grow older the charm of things new

Has faded away;  I’ve realized it’s true

That like a tree you can branch all around

But your roots always anchor you to the ground

Now I crave for something old and familiar

To satiate my senses, be music to my ear

Watch all old movies, to old songs listen

Dance to old beats, as tears in my eyes glisten

To comfort my soul lost in experiences varied

Unearth the memories that lay deeply buried…

And in the process, undergo transformation

Discover myself in a new light, with old information.
