Am I Wanderlost - 01

 

Will I ever settle?

Will I ever stay?

 

Am I Wanderlost - 02

 

Will this wanderlust spirit

ever go away?

 

Am I Wanderlost - 03

 

Will I understand countries

like a wino knows grapes

 

Am I Wanderlost - 04

 

Will I discover cultural meccas

and hidden beach escapes

 

Am I Wanderlost - 05

 

Will I learn a hundred languages

ok maybe just thank you hello

 

Am I Wanderlost - 06

 

Will I become a scattered mosaic

of the cultures where I go

 

Am I Wanderlost - 07

 

Will I taste bizarre insects

and the sweetness of exotic fruit

 

Am I Wanderlost - 08

 

dine on the floor of a mud hut

or on a skyscraper roof

 

Am I Wanderlost - 09

 

Will I ride on chicken buses

and sleep on cargo ferries

 

Am I Wanderlost - 10

 

take tiny propeller planes

do what seems most scary

 

Am I Wanderlost - 11

 

Will I come to realize

how little I actually know

 

Am I Wanderlost - 12

 

each truth I discover

I remove another robe

 

Am I Wanderlost - 13

 

Will I live so big

on what seems so little

 

Am I Wanderlost - 14

 

and see that so little

is more than enough for most people

 

Am I Wanderlost - 15

 

Will I fall in love quickly

because I’m wild and free

 

Am I Wanderlost - 16

 

then say goodbye readily

when my feet get itchy

 

Am I Wanderlost - 17

 

Will I find a partner

to commit to and to hold

 

Am I Wanderlost - 18

 

or will I continue to scatter

my heart across the world

 

Am I Wanderlost - 19

 

Will I get serious

and find a real job

 

Am I Wanderlost - 20

 

or will I tirelessly pursue

that which I truly love

 

Am I Wanderlost - 21

 

Will I return to society

the one from where I came

 

Am I Wanderlost - 22

 

though the more I travel

the less I can relate

 

Am I Wanderlost - 23

 

Will I plant my roots

will I make a home

 

Am I Wanderlost - 24

 

or am I destined

to forever roam

 

Am I Wanderlost - 25

 

If I lose my wanderlust

do I also lose myself

 

Am I Wanderlost - 26

 

without my wanderlust

am I nothing else?

 

Am I Wanderlost - 27

 

Will I one day be satisfied

will I one day be content

 

Am I Wanderlost - 28

 

or have I created an addiction

to anticipating what’s next

 

Am I Wanderlost - 29

 

Do I move

because I love the thrill

 

Am I Wanderlost - 30

 

do I move

because I’m afraid to sit still

 

Am I Wanderlost - 31

 

Maybe choosing to wander

means choosing to be lost

 

Am I Wanderlost - 32

 

but only when I lose myself

do I truly become found

 

Am I Wanderlost - 33

 

I will lead with my heart

let it show me where to go

 

Am I Wanderlost - 34

 

because I trust that one day

it will guide me home.

Hello beautiful soul,
In August 2018 I stopped blogging as This American Girl. You can now find me at my new website Earth Daughters, where I'm writing about the sacred experience of the wild woman. Hope to see you there xx
Love, Camille
