A Lonely Road

A drawing of a cartoon man pointing upwards

Hey there! This post was written in 2008, so it may contain information that is no longer accurate or thoughts that no longer reflect how I feel. As human beings, we're constantly learning and bettering ourselves through experiences and interactions with the world and each other.

I keep posts like this around for historical purposes and to prevent link rot, so please keep this in mind as you're reading.

Darkness sets in and clouds fill the sky
The evening waits patiently, life passes by

Off in the distance, she stands in a dress
She bears not a smile, her hair is a mess

Timid and restless with nowhere to turn
There's so much to see and so much to learn

Go to her. Go! Don't think with your mind
Think with your heart and see what you find

Step through the fog, breathe the cold air
The scenery changes…the girl isn't there

A vision that seemed so alive and surreal
Is left for the darkness of night to conceal

Did it all go away when we gave up our youth?
Has destiny failed in its moment of truth?

Are all of our dreams meant to wither and die?
Or will we find light, through the tears that we cry?
