Some Place Else

3 Mar

“Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.” ~Buckaroo Banzai

Some Place Else

“I wish I wasn’t here” is what
A lot of people think
Because the school or job or place
They are right now does stink

They think that they belong elsewhere
And that they’re being wasted
They long for other ventures that
They’ve previously tasted

It is important to accept
That sometimes where we are
Precisely is where we should be
Not some place that’s afar

Sometimes we wind up somewhere
Not just for our own sake
Instead it is to influence
And a difference make

Sometimes we wind up surrounded
By those we abhor
To make them grow in patience and
To make ours strengthen more

Sometimes impact that we have
On people who are near
Plays a monumental role
For them to conquer fear

Sometimes even though we think
That we’re being held back
Our character invigorates
Another peer’s attack

Worry not, brave Warriors
That you aren’t in right place
A Warrior does not in fact
Have any true home base

They are precisely where they should
Be, which is where they’re standing
Countries, buildings, companies
They don’t subscribe to branding

The Warrior can never wish
To be some place not here
‘Cause “here” is always where they are
No matter place or year

    I agree with Cat Forsley this piece reflects the truth and the reality and everything has a reason that make this place where we are and we should be…

    Well said, Miro – as always, you speak the true warrior’s words, and remind us to look deep inside to find our own truths. Well written poem. ~ Julie 🙂

    Here may be where we are so we got the place. Any hints on figuring out why?

    • Miro March 3, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

      You don’t need me to tell you why, you already know the answer. Most of the time we ask “why?” because we already know but hope someone will tell us something that sounds more fun, easy or comfortable.
      Peace & grace,
      ~Miro

    Sometimes reflections on the past makes one think on where they have been and now where they are, we are here now as is destined in our journey through life, accept , learn and move on into the next stage of our spiritual sojourn of self discovery
    Well written Miro

    Miro, a former priest of mine used to always tell me,”You are exactly where God wants you to be.” I totally believe this and am so thankful for your post here extolling the virtues of being grateful to be wherever you are at any given time! The warrior loves his “place”, always!

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
