Little Further

A humorous poem by Berton Braley about going a little further. Some people are content to stay exactly where they are and how they are in life, but others like Braley want to keep going until all roads are exhausted. While the poem is funny it is also encouraging to keep on going, life has much to offer if we just keep going a little further.



Little Further
by Berton Braley


The reason I never can quit the road
Is a reason that's plain and clear.
It's because no matter where I may stop
And whether it's far or near

There's a place beyond the place I am,
Wherever I may be at,
And then beyond is a place beyond
And the world beyond all that!

And as long as a man has eyes to see
And a brain that wants to know,
I figure there's things he's bound to miss
If he doesn't go on and go;

For there's always a place beyond the place
I happen to hang my hat,
And another place beyond that place
And the world beyond all that!

There's some folks stay in a single spot
Or a town of which they're fond,
And never worry a little bit
At the thought of a place beyond;

But the place beyond the place beyond
Won't never let me rest
For there's a sort of a kind of urge
That's burning within my breast-

To go and go till the end of life,
And when I've left it flat,
Go on beyond the place beyond;
And the universe after that!
