Lesson Learned

Updated on March 3, 2011

lesson learned...

my chosen path
treading broken glass
left feet both cut and bleeding
I sold my soul
paid the devil's toll...
red glaring flags unheeding.
desperation led
where all prudence fled
to find myself entangled...
in peril's web
in a psycho's bed...
to end up broke and mangled.
nearly lost my life
to a table knife
in a hand that looked so charming...
lived in fear
in the psycho's sphere,
helpless to disarming.
it took years
of self-pity's tears
my soul to then repurchase
but fought the fight,
choked each bitter bite,
and escaped the blighted circus.
today I know
where I can not go
and own my soul completely.
never more to roam
in a psycho's dome,
I avoid all webs discretely.
I have a voice.
can amend my choice
though I knew it not, for sorrow...
but the battle won
was a lesson spun
into promise of tomorrow.

      justom, these words feel like a load of rocks to me that putting into words and verse unloads...I fear I am no light writer...lol...but I will tell you this, friend, my heart sure feels lighter after each write! I so thank you for your faithful reads and comments!

      I'm glad they help you, I sure like reading them. You're one of a few on HP that I read and the words just seem to lend themselves to song lyrics. I'm not sure why, but?

      Perhaps they are the lyrics of my heart? I am surely glad, though, justom!

      I enjoyed your style, and word choice. I have just recently been working toward an escape of my own circus.

      Keep fighting the good fight against life's perils, stay strong, never give in.

      Good, strong piece. Thank you
