Through travel, concerts, or culinary indulgence

Striving to widen our horizons in ways unique

Enriching our lives with cultural abundance


We keep hoping external experiences

Will quench the longing of our soul

Finer things that appeal to our senses

Will somehow make our broken selves whole..


So we shell out money, hard-earned

Carve out time from our busy routine

Find these experiences, are happy we learnt

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.
