A Poem about regret.


On a Lonesome highway, days and nights of driving on

Traveling the road set by those who watch our

Wasted days and self-inflicted ways


I’ve hear the longing cries of those who wish for home

I’ve wondered about the ties that bind me to my family

And I’ve felt that, there are times when I need to be alone


Endless journey, destination we don’t yet know

It’s a road we all must someday go


Days and nights, only rarely do I think of you

The things that might have been and what I ought to do

Lonesome warrior, our own battles we do defend

The fights we didn’t realize we missed until the end
