A Slow Walk To Nowhere

entry picture

A slow walk to nowhere

A metaphor for life

Hills and valleys flatten

Amid the daily strife

 

Of drifting ever onward

The ending never clear

If today or if tomorrow

The last hurrah is here

 

Like walking the dog through raindrops

Pellets of water coating my head

Sniffing the ground for nothing

Or something being dead

 

Longing for resolution

Holding hands again

Yesterday’s tomorrows

In bed with us and then

 

Turning off the faucet

Of guilt and pain gone by

A chance that’s barely taken

Happiness worth the try

 

A faster walk to somewhere

Only the future knows

A happy life together

A restful night’s repose
