Lost Highway - Poem by David Harris

How many people have we seen
travelling down that lonely
lost highway to nowhere?
Their dreams have been broken
and their faith has been lost.
A bottle seems the only answer
to drive the world away.
They immerse themselves deeply
to forget who they are
and start travelling down
that lonely lost highway.
How many good people
have you seen fall this way,
letting go of their dignity
to travel down with others
along that lonely lost highway.
