 My Road to No Where

6/12/2018

 

My Road to No Where

It's hard to stay focused and in touch with my dreams
To block out the voices and misguiding screams.
They echo in my mind and tell me the wrong road to take...
Attracting me to a world where everything is fake.
Including my feelings and dreams that I chased...
Now I'll always have memories of years gone to waste.
I buried all my feelings and blocked out all pain...
Acknowledging the sunshine, while ignoring the rain.
I'm fooled into believing things are just fine...
And everybody's life is as carefree as mine.
Actually the pain just gets bottled inside...
And it slowly eats at my morals and pride.
I can see what I'm doing and the need for a change...
Yet suddenly stopping it's both scary and strange.
I know it's for the best and it needs to be done...
That life is more than parties and the need to have fun.
These things are fine at the right time and right place...
But I never seem to be able to stop giving in to the chase.
I lose all control and keep only one thing in mind...
From the direction I travel you'd swear I was blind.
I've repeated this pattern more times than you know...
The price I keep paying is starting to show.
I'm certainly not proud of the road that I've traveled...
I labeled myself as a loser as I slowly unraveled
My future meant nothing I lived for each day...
Rebelling against authority and all they would say.
I thought I knew it all and I was so cool...
Looking back at my past I see the life of a fool.
I'm older now, but I still hear that voice...
The difference now is I can see there's a choice.
I've learned a lesson that can't be found in the book...
That's to stay off the road that I took.
It leads to nowhere I've learned firsthand...
As the direction I've traveled was not what I had planned.
