This is the first time that I've written a poem. I know it is not much but still....

IS IT TRULY WORTH IT?

How dearly do I wish,

To get lost in a world that I know not;

In a world that knows me not.

How dearly do I wish,

To travel to the end of that world;

All by myself, to hear stories untold.

With a book in hand,

To capture my wandering thoughts;

A tune to my ears,

To calm my fluttering soul;

And the nature to behold,

To enrapture my quiet heart.

How dearly do I wish,

To travel and travel alone....

But then I ask myself,

Is it truly worth it?

Leaving all whom I love,

And all who love me?

Living only on sweet memories of theirs,

Encrusted with the sorrow of separation?

Letting them go,

While I know,

There can't be a turning back,

Once I go?

Is it truly worth it?

Shattering my crazy little world,

Tearing theirs apart,

For a world that I don't even know exists?

How can I be so greedy, so cruel?

To throw away my beautiful world,

Joyful little world,

For the sake of....

A shiny utopia?

Is it truly worth it?

To weary away now,

In the fantasies of the morrow,

When I have all of the present,

To cherish and to enjoy?

Is it truly worth it?

Throwing away a handful of diamonds,

For a ton of quartz?
