How could I have forgotten
On the endless quest for the light
That darkness would always follow
Lessons to learn
Images to memorize
On our way through this life
We see what we long to
Ignoring the signs,
Dead end streets that leave us wondering the direction
Internal compass in perpetual kitty wampus,
Is that a word I’d often heard to describe the state
And the birds chatter on branches endlessly,
Yet Poe is no longer around to decipher the script
And I hold up the cardboard sign
Pleading for understanding on a desolate site
and yet they move on like passengers
Locked into the endless 3D screen,
Waiting for a conclusion,
And here I sit in thought wondering….
There they go again
Driving by as the red light changes to green
I am unseen.
Into bushes I will move as the light I sought
Burns too deep,
And I will escape into the night,
Befriended by the darkness
Slipping into the nest
I call home.
Many thoughts moving….a large homeless population in the small city/town that is home…as seasons change….darkness and light battle….I give my thougts to the lost souls near and far.
