North, East, South and West

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

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.
