One morning, upon awakening
On a city bus bench…………. Angry, disoriented, disgusted and drenched
Too distraught to travel, another single inch
I didn’t know where I was going
Wasn’t quite sure where I had been
You see, I’d lost my ticket along the way
As hassles and plots thickened
Attempting to shift the blame
I justified every little thing
Implicating both foes and friends
As the reason the saga began
Then, reality struck, like lightening In the midst of stormy weather
A voice from the wind whispered “look within
For only you can chose to be better”.
So, I made a vow, with my head unbowed
To first pull my self together….
Empowered by choice, indecision was deposed
I took control of body, mind and soul….
