New Direction

I left my home up north
to experience the earth
and boldly sallied forth
abandoning my berth,

I gave the south a shot
to try out something new
but it was much too hot
so I rolled right on through

then I headed west
when told that gold was deep
then left when I assessed
there wasn’t much to keep

still consumed by wanderlust
I traveled to the east
where everything is left to rust
decay's unending feast.

My journies left me sad
for nowhere did I find
anything better than what I had
and I knew in my mind

the way the needle’s set
may not be your best course
your greatest journey yet
could be waiting at the source
