If You Dont Travel

I always marvel

Whenever I travel


Because if you don’t travel

And extensively explore

How can you open those awaiting doors?

Mysteries always lie waiting to be unraveled


I travel with my eyes

Watching those silently cry

Asking themselves the question why

Someone left them without saying goodbye


I travel with my thoughts

Abundant knowledge I have found and sought


I travel with my pen

To write about children, women and men


I travel with my voice

Speaking sensibly refusing to induce confusing noise


I travel with hope

Believing something new will spring into my horoscope

Whether in Africa or whether in Europe

There is always room, there is always scope


I travel to many places

Mix with different culture and races

Identify tribes by their faces

Everyone I always embrace


I travel with or without money

So please listen to my testimony

Every experience is worth lifes journey


I travel with intensive faith

Lavishing love rather than being defensive with hate


Because if you don’t travel

How can you grow?

How can you know,

What is beneath the dust and below the gravel?
