An Irish Journey

I walked around this world so vast trying to hear the voice from the past,
but as I headed home
to take these steps alone,
I heard you whispering at last.

****

This path has pushed me onward
towards “stay” and “do not wander,”
but paths can be wrong,
a flat note in a song,
of journeys I should be fonder.

****

Loads of ridiculous limericks
never add up to enough sticks
to light this match
or finish this batch
of words that were meant to fix.

****

Ok. Today’s Blogging U prompt was journey, the form was limerick, and the device was alliteration. I tried serious, literal, funny, but I’m not satisfied. Oh well. Maybe it’s the rhyme since I rarely use it.
