You Called

Introverted Sage

If you’ve come to take me
Please go right ahead.
My mind is playing tricks on me
Feeling lost inside my head.

I don’t know where I’m going
But I know just where I’ve been.
Even accumulated a few places
I’ll never set foot again.

Gypsy minded spirit
To live my life upon the breeze.
Finding my way back
It’s my heart I aim to please.

Following to where I’m guided
Not really One to be lead.
Creating my own pathways.
A trail of my footsteps instead.

So if you’re not here to take me
And just want to walk beside.
We’re headed to my calling.
The one that’s buried deep inside.

~Introverted Sage~

    Ohhhhh I love the flow and rhythm. But that's not important. I keep seeing the same theme so I'm taking this one for me. I just mentioned one of my favorite quotes to someone else: "I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be"...keeps hitting me like a brick!! "We’re headed to my calling. The one that’s buried deep inside" INDEED!!! Thank you!!!

      Yes! We always seem to come across what we need be it situations, places or people.

      journeys, ultimately
      are internal
      we quest to find, our truths
      be they by someone's side
      or just alone
      what matters is that we follow
      our heart's whispers/guidance
      so we don't waste too much time
      journeying, just
      for the sake of journeying
      sincerity, clarity and intent
      crucial elements
      in every choice we make..
      (really related to your insightful depths in this one
      words to contemplate after reading)
      thank you! dear Poet

        They really are!
        '... and we find ourselves presented with a crossroads... when far too much time has been spent on wasted objectives..'
        .. running against the crowd is so exhausting.
        I'm glad you were able to relate!
        I appreciate you!
        Thank you!

        ‘Gypsy minded spirit
        To live my life upon the breeze.’

        I love this, this just resonates with my own desires of being free. Journey of utter freedoms. Not knowing where you’re going, just keep moving, not returning to any darkness where you’ve been. Pleasing only your self and your heart.
