I like walking in the rain,
Walking without purpose;
The calm of an evening stroll,
Observing the wonders of the world
In the presence of my own company.
I enjoy the way the sky changes
From day to night and watching
People change too as the day comes
To a close and the darkness frees
Sights you do not ordinarily see,
From lovers stood still kissing to
The lone person walking scared.
I walk with my eyes open,
I walk to learn from everyone and
Everything until my feet begin to
Hurt and tell my brain that it is
Time now to return and rest,
But my mind is not done and I
Reflect at home on everything
That I have seen – A place where I
Was born and grew up that is now
Unfamiliar, as it is ever-changing.
That teaches me to never stop walking,
For there will always be learning and
There are far more wonders to see.
