CANDY WRAPPERS, FALLEN DREAMS

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

Candy wrappers crumble

                          on the floor

                 like fallen dreams

 

                      despair

                      desperation

                      desolation

 

ashes fall along the road

                              you take

 

            (shoulda followed me, eh?)

 

You made your choice

                   guess it wasn’t
                          the right one

 

guess you would have liked

                      that other path

                             that I luckily

                opted to follow

 

               and alone

               without you

               I journeyed

 

         You didn’t  have the guts

              and you found

                 your own road

           was just a dead end

 

while my road remains open

                   in spite

         massive obstacles

 

                never too great

                     to overcome
