The Road To....


Every avenue followed
Leads to a dead end
Every possibility assumed
Has been mistaken
Every idea shot down
With reality
Hope that is anything less
Isn't hope really

Closeness and tender words
Only politeness
Anymore to conclusions jump
Must be scandalous
Me the only guilty one
Can shoulder the blame
Either way doesn't matter
End result the same

Advantageous business sense
Head on straight
Build a solid future
Retirement will be great
But when too old to enjoy
Will the passion be missed
What part is given up
To achieve this

Plan for tomorrow
Always
But live for today
Early mornings alone
Could live differently
Priorities for the future
Should include the here and now
Should find my way to another play
Lord knows lately I've been missing out

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
