Long Gone


Long time gone,
humble return,
made right wrong,
felt the burn.

Come back humble,
lesson learned,
I did not stumble,
I did get burned.

Seeing the leaves,
forgetting the roots,
seeing self leave,
missing new shoots.

Never again,
the fool I've been,
seeming insane,
error so seen.

    Life is a journey of self discovery, when we have accomplished all that we set out to accomplish, we can relinquish with a sigh, it's been a pleasure reading your poetry tonight xxx
