Old Clothes New Friends

I’m walking down the road With a pocket full of thrills Trying to retrace my steps Striving for something real I’m far away from home What happened to my friends? Where did they all go? I don’t seem to know I don’t really think I care They were never really there When I needed them the most To help me try to cope It pains me to say that I don’t need them I threw away my old clothes for something decent And it doesn’t feel right I made some new friends for a reason I bought some new clothes I wish they could see them And maybe I won’t feel so bad The path that I am on Where it all went wrong Being cooler than cool Soon catches up to you No one seems to know No one seems to care I’m lost with out a map I’m trapped somewhere out here Passing out in the street Like a junkie on TV It’s not what I want It’s what I end up being (/center) ***Thank you I've cleaned it up the best I could.***

    I am very happy to have been able to read your poetry today Thomas. I do not have a lot of words to comment on it but I want you to know I did read it. Every poem as with every poet has a different meaning and I do not wish to misinterpert your poetry. I do love reading poetry here and I get inspiration from others poetry which enables me to write new poetry myself. There are lots of wonderful people who give great comments here and I hope they all read your poetry and comment. Love, Carol
