I have moved this over from a redundant thread. The answer from the indefatigable Les follows.

I'm trying to find a poem.....

The only bits I can remember is "There is a staying in my going and a leaving in my staying." I think that's how it goes. Can you help?

Thanks
Vitta

I believe this is by Kahlil Gbran:

My house says to me, "Do not leave me, for here dwells your past."

And the road says to me, "Come and follow me, for I am your future."

And I say to both my house and the road, "I have no past, nor have I a future. If I stay here, there is a going in my staying; and if I go there is a staying in my going. Only love and death will change all things.
