Unclaimed journey

Looking for a particular road
not one painted in lines
but I know the one
It keeps me searching
long days under the sun
I ask the stars
not to tease and wink
but light a path
To an unclaimed journey
forever seeking the ones
that scream with madness
willing to go the distance
the unbroken ones
that are born to run

  1. So I've read this seceral times.. lol. It's very interesting to me how much it feels like me.. I am sure everyone reads poetry and get something totally different from it.. It's very cool. :)

    1. Hey Melanie! I knew you would fit the criteria:)lol. I believe we share the same philosophy of being on that certain journey in life. I'm glad you felt the connection. You're right about poetry too, it's all about perception and what you feel. I'm a dreamer and optimist. I really appreciate your comment. Hope you have a great week:) Thanks, Chris

    2. Hi Chris.. Ya, I agree.. Seems like we share the same philosophy for sure. :) Thank you, hope you have a great week too!! Melanie

  2. Sounds like you're looking for the mad ones, mad with life...

    "The only people for me are the mad ones. The ones who are mad to love, mad to talk, mad to be saved; the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the starts. ~Jack Kerouac

    1. I'm a big fan of Kerouac! Maybe I'm a little mad:) I just like believing that there may be a magical journey ahead. I like to test the boundaries of everyday life. Thanks for the comment and for the follow! Chris

  3. you are sure that you want to look for that road…
    the light and extinguished abruptly
    and your eyes continue to see those lines
    . .ma not there is a road
    it is only the road of our mind.

    1. Dino, glad you stopped by again. You're right, maybe I shouldn't look for that "particular" road. I've always been a risk taker and it's been both good and bad. I agree about it being in our mind as well. I will always be searching anyway my friend. Thanks for the comment! Chris

  4. An uplifting poem, Chris! It's great to take risks and explore new roads ... as long as you ask for light and direction, you will be on the right path. I like this very much. Have a good week :)

    1. Thanks, Loredana! I appreciate the nice comment. Glad you liked it. Hope you have a wonderful week as well! Chris
