The Quest

The Quest

I've come back home a different man
so many years have past
Ambition lured me far from home
and dreams they didn’t last

When I left home I never knew
what life was all about
The quest to find my niche in life…
assumed it’d all work out 

My path to glory found dead ends
I struggled for so long
Another face inside the crowd
How did it all go wrong?

In time old memories spoke to me
when I was all alone
And in the end a still small voice
said Son, you should go home

    Another masterpiece which captures the reader's heart. Thank you Jon. Wish I could write this way. Also, I have a question...have you been published? I would be interested into purchasing your book should you have one published. I couldn't seem to add you to my Facebook page...sorry!
