About “There”…

There is everywhere. Yet, we never notice that much about there. I guess we are just unaware…of what there is. “Where?” You say. Well…by now you should guess my answer…”There”. (Ha!)

about there

“There always appears there!” | Source

There…is where I want to be…

To know…To touch…To feel…To see.

There is where I would dare to be…

And all of there…is there…right there in front of me.

Have you been there…Yes…You know where…!

I’m talking about being there…or do you care ?

There is always there…

But I have nothing with which to compare…

Still I must try not to look confused with a blank stare…

The more I look into what is there…the more it stares back…with a sullen glare. 

Oh…So unaware…

And…Oh…So ‘fraid to dare !

Take care…to see what is just out there…

Be scared…Be very scared…if you don’t know where.

To be there…When you are not here…is a wild, wild ride…

To be here…When you should be there…is something…you just can’t hide.

Be careful of what you know…about being way out over there…

Some folks…will tell you all about there…and of them you must beware.

Have you no thought of what must lie ahead…way out…over there…?

What can I tell you…Life just isn’t fair…especially there…which truly isn’t fair.

Have you wondered at just who is out there…?

Have you looked around you from here and to there…in total despair…?

To find that you only could “Ask Why”…Alone in the Midnight Air.

Though nothing answered the hole in your soul…in need of repair…

You sought ways to know more about what’s way out…over there.

Again I say…Do you dare ?

Dare…to venture to what is out there.

You can get there…even without any air fare.

There always appears there…no matter where I look…

I can’t even imagine…how many times I see there in a book.

Ok there…Now that we have gotten that there thing out’ta the way…you know…

There…is there…right there…and there can be over there…and there is still more to go.

My mind becomes an endless questionnaire…

To learn more about…just what’s really out there.

A little bit of knowledge…goes a long, long way…

Knowledge is where you find it…Do you understand what I’m trying to say ?

I have a question for you…What is there…about there…that I still feel the need to know…

Will I ever get there from here…I got’ta admit…I want to get there…I surely would like to go.

I am always here looking for there…but I never find it here…

I look to find it there…but it is nowhere to be found…I fear.

How can I get there from here…A question that we all eventually must ask ourselves…

To search for an answer not found in books that are collecting dust upon the shelves.

Oh…of there…so out in the distance…and oh…so out of reach…

How do I get there from here…Surely…there it is…clearly in my speech.

I have tried to get from here to there… and found that to get there from here…is further than near…

But…I only know of here…not there…though I try to see more of there…from here.

Really…I’m not sure if you’re understanding me…Am I making myself clear ?

I know so little of there….Would it be possible for you to help me get there from here?

Of there…and Of here…I know really very little about…

You found me right here…before I went over there…right before I even set out.

I went over to see you there…but you only wanted to come over here…so it would seem…

There…way over there…is a place where we have all seen…If only…in a dream.

But there is hard to fathom…there is hard to find…

There is the place longed for…lost in the back of your mind.

Go there…and you will see…

That there is even a better place for us all to be.

And know that it was far better there than what you had ever thought…

You will find yourself there…whether you or ready to go there…or not !

 

There you have it: About “There”…

about there
