Second Thoughts

Beyond the old oak tree
Along a crumbling rock wall
A moment of deja vu
Suddenly came over you

Sit silently a spell
Listen to the sounds of Summer
In the wind are stories to tell
Of empires that rose and fell

Specters of another time
Revelry is a victimless crime
All that I see
Was meant to be

On your feet again
Wandering the west woods
Carrying all your worldly goods
Each step relieves your pain

You come to a fork in the road
Try to unlock the hidden code
While lightening your load
Your stamina has begun to erode

Unexpectedly your plan went awry
You went right instead of left
Earth’s gravity I do defy
A hasty decision now your bereft

In the gathering darkness
You finally arrive
With unquestioning devotion
You drink my magic potion

Looking back
Over your shoulder
Let’s get together
Before we get much older

Daring Steps

Words unspoken often

Lead you to temptation

A position poised

To determine your fate

Upon the line which you walk

A razor’s edge

Two steps forward

One step off

Defend your status

Amongst the honored elite

Vested with privilege and scourge

High above you hear the call

A voice of the past

Or is it the wind

Daring you to fly

Into uncharted territory

Across the desert of your mind

A lonely terrain

Damaged by the demons

Of the modern day

For which you gamble

All that you have

And all that you areImage
