Crossroads...In Search Of Something More Concrete.

Crossroads.-

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....
a.....Void!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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

      Luckily

      Otherwise informed

      I now see possibility

      May your journey also lead you

      Beyond futility

      To possibility

      May you feel complete

      Before under concrete
