Road to Nowhere

Dragging stones
As far as the shore
Stretched beneath the blue skies
I witnessed the trivial
Saw the inessential
Noticed how time irreversibly flies

Was I not happy as a child?
Or have the standards of happiness
Simply changed since then?
I recall being alive, being happy
No matter where, why and when

I'd rather say
My heart and senses have withered
Rid of small joys that mean life
Far enough have I lingered
Between taking to the future
Or staying in the past

Dragging stones
Deep into the ocean
With no worry of return
I heard the mute's song
Seen the difference between right and wrong
But still feel no divergence between
Or at least not one I could discern

Sometimes we don't learn
Sometimes we never learn

Dragging stones
Venturing beneath the water mirrors
Which reflect the tide and waves
Honoring the self-harming killers
Who dug their own graves
Just like I did

Last omens
Carved on rotten wood
Painted crimson and black
'I have a good life
Stood where no one should'

And if I could re-live my life
I would, I would

Dragging stones
In the tomb of time
Walking through the bones
Of those who went as far
In the middle of emptiness

Building my very own
Road to nowhere
A monument to my inaudible prayers
And if anyone would care
A monument to my indelible mistakes

When will I learn?
When does tomorrow begin?
Will anyone see past my shell?
Would you like to know what's held within?
Sin, only sin

I have faltered
I am confused
I was martyred
I had accused

The world for being one big
Road to nowhere

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
