A Poem I Wrote When I First Visited Athens

This was a poem I wrote whilst being sat at the Acropolis when I was nineteen. I think it gives an insight into why I fell in love with this city.

People say I’ve lost my way
But I know my destination
So now I leave and off I stray
Enough of contemplation

People say I’ve lost my way
And I can’t disagree
Because here I stand in a foreign land
There’s no one here with me

People say I’ve lost my way
But now I know my place
A million miles from home
Far from that rat-race

People say I’ve lost my way
Buy now I am at ease
The smell of the trees
That warm breeze
What more is there to say

People say I’ve lost my way
But I understand why
I have too much time to sit and think
Maybe I should think of more to say

People say I’ve lost my way
And I can’t disagree
Because here I stand in a foreign land
But finally I am free
