Crossroads...In Search Of Something More Concrete.

Updated on October 9, 2009



In search of Something

More Concrete.




All my life spent in search
of something more concrete,
chasing brighter horizons
yet still set in my ways,
watching dreams rushing by me
in a blur..just like billboards ,
faded...bent down and worn..
all those places unvisited ,
there was no time to stop...
on my long one-way journey,
headed for middle-age.
Now my life is half-spent
and I still find myself
rushing on in a blur,
now on something more concrete
that is stretching before me ,
to endless horizons
searching places unvisited,
my ways set before me
time stops for no one ,
yet those billboards entice me
promising me sweet dreams,
of brighter horizons
exit....just round the bend....
But now I am fading
bent down and worn,
now I'm chaste as I journey
down that long one-way road,
leading off to that place
that we all know as aging ,
that we  constantly seek to....
There's a marker that's waiting
in the miles left before me
that will highlight my exit
from the road dust of life,
with a sigh I will drift
without hopes of a by-pass,
round that bend to a place
only visited once,
and forever remain
'neath a more concrete setting,
long past aging and pain
off the road spent in life.

      I was where you are

      Saw too much futility


      Otherwise informed

      I now see possibility

      May your journey also lead you

      Beyond futility

      To possibility

      May you feel complete

      Before under concrete
