Weary traveler on the road to nowhere;

burden laden with no one around to care.

Heavy feet upon cold hard gravel ground;

he stares forward no refuge to be found.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Desolate road where no wild flowers grow;

no green fields nor streams of water flow.

Road of life left him hollow barren ground;

he wanders endlessly without a sound.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

His heart laments the sorrow in his eyes;

now cast down, instead of up to the skies.

Many valleys he’s traveled through thus far;

loves won and lost have left a lasting scar.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An island in himself; with no bridge to cross;

taking him to place, where he forgets his loss.

Memories all that’s left, of the mountain peek;

where he stood so proud; his fortunes to seek.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One wrong turn, led him to this path now on;

now all he sought and won is forever gone.

Penitence for his greed;life of lonely travel;

on an endless road; made of stone and gravel.
