Where shall we go my friend?
In this undefined darkness
Shall we seek the light of another morn?
Or rest for the journey tomorrow doubtless?
Does it matter at all?
For the days going on without end
Searching wandering asking
Is this the way- is this way my friend?
I tire so easily now- years without end
To what point? Shall we rest?
What defines the end?
When will we know? Have we done our best?
Another day- of pain and disappointment
Occasionally punctuated by happiness
Occasionally a kindred spirit
Wandering without direction, wandering in listlessness
How I envy those that have not started
Those that will likely never start this journey of chance
Their laughter of careless joy is gripping
As I stand at a distance watching their dance.
Am I the fool? The one searching without end?
Denying myself the simple joy of a life accepted- unattended
The journey may be beyond all- a folly for fools
A life wasted pursuing a fantasy- He never intended
Maybe simply enjoy- the simplicity
A world created with delights and pain
Let our spirit be tested-tempted
Tempered as it dances near the flame
But you and I – two fools on likely a fruitless quest
We will arise as the sun begins its breach
Stiff, sore, hungry and still tired
Into a distant horizon always escaping our reach.
