Roads I Can't Leave Behind

Written by: Michael J. Falotico

                           I stood on a stage where I assumed I couldn't be fixed...
                          I thought a broken heart was the end as my clock ticked...
                 Then the curtains were raised and I saw many that were the same...
                            Through words and frienships I could erase the blame...
                                  I wiped away reflections that haunted my walls...
                                    But I built up wisdom for the next time it falls...
                       Left with a heart made with undried tears and invisable cracks...
                                          But a stronger soul that stays intact...
                                        Strange as it may seem I need the pain...
                                      Because when all is well it keeps me sane...
