The Road of Old

October 29, 2011

Fireflies drink in the night
So they can put out light

Summer heat
fourth of July fireworks

friends or hotdogs
pools or barbecues

of life long by

Why oh why
do I always
wonder down this road

It has the same
trees and sun

Always green
With the sun hot and bright

Nostalgia or whatever
I don’t care

This road is long
And dull as anything

A flash there
And thunder somewhere else

But all in all
It’s just the same

One day I’ll
See something different

I’ll travel
The other road

But for now
I’m stuck
In this rut of monotony
