Vagabond

31/8/2017

I only feel myself when I'm away
when I don’t know where I’m going and my mind is running.
When I walk along unknown streets and look foreigners in the eyes
wondering what their pasts and futures might be.

I only feel myself when I’m out there
where I’ve never been
where people don’t know me and don’t expect anything from me.

I only feel myself when I’m alone
when I do what I want and go where I want.
When I miss the comfort of being with others.

I only feel myself when I’m on the road.
On a bus, on a train, on the tube, on a bike.
Always moving, always going.

I only feel myself when my mind is so preoccupied with figuring out stuff
that it barely has time to think about the mess that’s going on.
I only feel myself when I’m able to create a new me
'cause nobody knows who I am anyway
so what’s the big deal.
What would they do if they knew who I really am?
