Where Do I Go From Here

Where do I go from here     The money`s gone     So`s the wife     Need a reason to change my life      I walk the streets alone at night     Thinking out loud     What do I do to make it right     Fought the wars a thousand years     Too old too tired to care      Impossible now to believe in prayer     From one corner to the next     Like straying sheep I am led       Looking for a home     A place to lie my head     Can`t sing for money     Don`t know the beat     Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall       I live on the street      They pass me by     Never stopping to speak     Just stare and point       I am a sideshow freak     Don`t know the day     No watch to tell the time     Very few words do I say     Why am I here      What was my crime       Where`s the man in charge     Who do I see       I`ll fill out the form     That sets me free      No ticket for the bus     The train ran off the track   Click my heels 3 times     Show me the way back     I`m not alone     Thousands of others like me      The homeless armies     Not invisible     Open your eyes and see     Are you my savior     Any miracles left for me     Does God exist    If so      Show me for all to see Too cold here to be hell     No angels to open the gate     Walking the streets     Appears to be my fate     For most of my life     Full speed ahead     Nothing to fear    Could do no wrong    I saw the future all too clear    Only a fool knows all     A wise man opens his eyes to see     When the train stops     Where will he be    Never made plans for the future    Thought my world was in place    Saw the end of the rainbow    As plain as the nose on my face   A thousand times a day    I ask myself the question why    What sin did I commit   Who did I make cry    No answers to my pleas    Silent voices ringing in my ears   No relief for the weary   Been walking these streets for years   My angel of mercy   The cop on the beat   Closes his eyes   Allows me to sleep on the street   Darkness is my enemy   When I close my eyes to sleep Never know what the day will bring   Will I awaken from the deep   Nobody to share my covers   Alone too long to know   Afraid to ask the question   Are you friend or are you foe   Despair and lonliness   My two best friends   Breaks your heart And captures your soul   These two powerful emotions   Take their toll   Where do I go from here   I see the future all too clear Walking the streets alone at night   Obvious to me I`ve lost the fight

    Although it is deeply scary and hard to read as "there but of the grace go" we. I am glad you are writing about what it is like. So that people can feel your humanity and see how close it is to us all. It does wake us up and open our eyes. A good man can be brought down hard Thank you for the write
