Going Down a One Way Street

Poetry By: retlaw

A poem about discovering that you are ever evolving. Knowing that once you start the journey to self-discover there are consequences.

A driver goes in one way street the opposite way

He is not drunk, confused, or out for joy ride

The overwhelming urge to get to his destination

There are plenty of safer ways to get to the other side

Driver has done that all his life and needs to do differently

Deep inside his soul he know there a lesson to be learned

Dodging cars and pedestrians any wrong move and is over

Innocent bystanders have nothing to do with his scorned

Yet they will suffer the most and be wounded

It has become a quest more than objective

Nagging feeling that has hunted him, is this it?

The need to feel alive and need to know there more to look forward too

Expanding his horizons by experience the wrongness

At the end of the street he arrives with his heart pounding

What does he see standing at the end?

Himself standing there looking the same

But knowing that he is quite different

Now the question that remains is as old as time

Can he live with his new self?

Because once you gone down the one way

You can't live with your old self
