The Way Back

Objects in this mirror are not necessarily as they seem

They are behind you for a reason. Leave them be.

Great advice. If only I would listen.

A familiar song plays on the radio

I can feel the very tug on my soul.

I must follow.  It points the way.

It will lead me back


I know I shouldn’t, and still I try

Life has taken me down a different path

But still I try


The floodgates have opened and I am adrift

Carried on the current, snatched by the vicious undertoe

Propelled, unfettered, toward the rocky shore


I turn off the radio and embrace the silence

The reverie is broken and I find the scenery unchanged

Calm sets in and I am certain

Though I may be tempted, I can never find the way back
