2-45 in the morning

2-45 in the morning,
Wide awake and needing sleep.
Waiting on the concourse,
For a flight to anywhere.

2-45 in the morning,
My life in an old backpack.
No one here to say goodbye,
Ain't never coming back.

2-45 in the morning,
Got a ride out to Brazil.
Don't leave 'til dawns first light,
Got a few hours to kill.

2-45 in the morning,
Din't mean to hit that guy.
He didn't say a word to me,
Just looked me in the eye.

2-45 in the morning,
Got to cool my temper down.
Trouble found me out again,
I think it's my middle name.

2-45 in the morning,
No time to wait for the plane.
If the law find me in here,
It's back to prison again.

2-45 in the morning,
The streets are dark and cold.
I'm forty years old tomorrow,
But I'm feeling really old.

2-45 in the morning,
Those guys look mean up ahead,
They look like the've found trouble,
When you read this I'll be dead.

    It was not a confession from my past , just a poem. I would probably have walked away, but I can see the realism in it from my past, especially my army past. This may have given me ideas for some future scribblings. Thanks for dropping by Cynthia. God Bless. Dave.
