Somewhere Down The Road - Poem by Phil Soar

Somewhere down the road
When time has caught me, and expired
The clock I've watched for many years
Will find me worn and tired
And somewhere deep inside of me
When time has taken everything
The road, and the paths it's led me to
Will no longer owe me anything

Somewhere down the road
When all my innocence has disappeared
The magnitude of what I've learned
Will no longer shadow all I feared
And somewhere alongside the stream
That flows through veins and arteries
My mind will then no longer dream
There'll be no abject mysteries

Somewhere in the scheme of things
The scale of life's absurdity
Will dwell no longer at my heart
It's rhythms play no part of me
And somewhere in my addled mind
Where stories built this world for me
The quiet of the traffic it once held
Will cease to matter much to me
