Where Are We Going?

Where Are We Going? ©

Penned by Brad Osborne

Hard to sleep the night before.

Always harder, not knowing.

With the rising sun we’ll leave,

I wonder where we’re going.


Machines both gleam, tanks are full.

A gentle breeze is blowing.

Looks like a great day ahead,

I wonder where we’re going.


Sweet air fills our lungs with breath,

scent strong with lilac growing.

Dappled roads unwind ahead,

I wonder where we’re going.


Baked by sun and asphalt too,

with all the heat it’s throwing.

It can’t get better than this,

I wonder where we’re going.


Twist and turn, the day clocks by.

The bond between us showing.

Don’t want this to ever end,

No care for where we’re going.

    While many people like to know where they’re going in most pursuits, it seems what makes riding the most exciting is not knowing.

    Beautiful Brad although I read this and three possibilities dance before me. First I saw soldiers moving in their machine early morning doing what they must do. One day moving after another as they do what they must do. Then I thought of what is continuing to go on in the world we are living with where COVID takes over. Then I read it again and see a person saying he is getting closer to another and the world is spinning forward but she is the only wanted constant. Lovely work!!! Hugs and love Brad, Jonikins xoxoxoxo

      Thanks for sharing that, Jonikins! As artists we become so involved in our own visions that we forget our words can be many different things to different people. Thanks for the reminder.
