North, East, South and West

Posted by on Dec 5, 2016 in Poetry

Four friends set out
from where
they stood.

One went North.

One East.

Another South.

The last one, West.

Each in search of meaning.

Each in search
of the point of
their own life.

Three would continue along
the never ending road
of becoming someone.

Each of them assuming
they needed to be
somewhere other than
where they were.

But one would come to know
the significance of standing still.
