I have traveled far
East, west, north, south; now I’ve found
The end of the road

And thank you, Jane_P, for saying what many poets are afraid to admit, which is that their pens are guided by their souls through moonlight paths of wind and willows.

Well, even writers don't always know what their work is about, but I think the poem is about someone finding some kind of peace or ending after a long journey. Maybe they found what they were looking for, or maybe they didn't. I think it just depends on the reader.

 

Thanks so much! Love your username, by the way.

I love this poem, so simplr but it still shows emotion, could you possible explain the meaning a bit more? is it about giving up after searching for a long time or about searching and finally finding what you're looking for? very good poem though!! :)
