Why Travel?

Travel
to breathe in newness,
to breathe out
the toxic hate
corroding your insides.

Travel
to face
uncertainties,
to trace
unfamiliar territories,
with or without a map.

Travel
to let Nature
leave you spellbound.

Travel
in silence
and listen
to your heart pound.

Travel
to get away.

Travel
to get lost,
to find yourself.

Travel
to be humbled
by the knowledge
of the speck that you are,
and the vastness of the Universe,
bigger than your ego.

Travel
to let go.

Travel
to make memories,
that you will narrate
to your children and theirs,
with a toothless smile,
twinkling eyes
and deepened crow’s-feet.

Travel
to let the beauty
of the rising Sun
leave you in smithereens.

Travel
to see the setting  Sun
paint the sky
tangerine.
