Triple Prompt- Hear The Calling

I Hear The Call Of The Wild

I hear the call of the wild.
Once again gear on my journey
Through the dark dense jungles.
Exploring the flora and fauna
In the wilderness of the parks
Of the nations densest grounds.
My bones do ache with 
Unwanted long peaceful rests.
Families at times a burdensome affair.
The heart remains buried under
Cumbersome affairs.
A life of freedom with the wild
Ensnaring and escaping
From getting ensnared.
Life with roughest and crudest
Challenges to exploit.
An itching foot to traverse
The untrodden dangers
Of the virgin forests.
I the master of my life
The power in my fist
The earth under my foot.
I hear the call of the wild
No strain no restrain.

Paige, there are no such rules. Just follow your heart! Sometimes, it works, sometimes not. It all depends on how the sponsor accepts it. Thanks for visiting my page! Love, Balveen

Thanks for sharing and good luck. If people were like coals in a fire, the coals that are the warmest are the one's huddled together sharing their heat. Pacing yourself with the burden you will find love...When your journey is your's alone, Rock On!

I was without sleep, so please forgive me. Poems bring out emotions within me just like sad songs sometimes make me cry...kind of silly. It was a reference to life and memories your poem triggered within me...that is all. Good Luck my friend :) BTW, my sisters called me "Edweird" when I was growing up because my thoughts were different ~ Peace

Thanks for reading my poem! But forgive me, was this reference for this poem or the one on 'peace not war'?
