A Trip To The Wizard

I’m on my way to oz you see
To get myself a heart.
Those around me tell me now
Mine has fallen all apart.

The love that I once knew
Went down the wrong yellow brick road
Sometimes I wish in my dreams
He would have helped this fantasy unfold

Courage is something else I’ll need
To continue through each day
No one ever told me
My life would be this way

The munchkins in this unknown land
Helped me find the way
To gather all my wits and help me
With what I have to say

So over the rainbow I’ll now go
And chase each day anew
With a brand new heart and courage
To find a love that’s true

    I enjoy the playfulness of this poem in contrast to the serious dilemma that is being described. The honesty and openness is impressive. Perhaps the best path to a happy ending is humor joined with honesty and optimism. (Report) Reply
