Unguided Tour

I'm on a ride back to nowhere.
Back where I started from.
Where the ring of truth goes round in circles.
And you just end up a bum.

I've spun my wheels till there's no tread.
Sung for my meals just to get fed.
I'm looking for a place to start without a glimpse of hope.
Somewhere where I can trace my heart to the last knot on the rope.

My bag of tricks to pick up chicks, I gave up years ago.
My reputation, I tried to fix, but you know how it goes.
The absolute of yesterday's all anybody knows.
And now my lifes a patch work quilt of someone elses clothes.

I'm on the road to better days if I can find my way.
From where the past left me aghast  with nothing left to say.
My hopes and dreams hung on moonbeams are fading in the sun.
Life's not alway's just what it seems when your living on the run.

Maybe someday the air will clear so I can finally see.
That over there away from here, I'll come to know it's me.
That pulls the strings when the truth rings of what was meant to be.
And this bird fly's up to the sky's to finally be free.

    Robert, this is marvellous! You are very gifted, writing songs! The rhythm is always there, swinging in a particular way that right away gives a tune to me! And that line (I'm buying it from your garage sale, as you promised!): And now my lifes a patch work quilt of someone elses clothes... Just wow! Ciao, Hanitra

    Sounds like a story many could tell these days. I love the use of double rhyme you used in some of the lines and the positive ending. Nice write Robert,, Luv Elizabeth

    Deeply saddened by this poem...Hoping it's not about you...and things are better than this reads. Though I do understand wheels spinning with no thread..Take care my friend and God Bless !!
