Road Leads on to Road

October 18, 2014

No matter where you go
Road leads on to road
And you’ll never know
Where unchosen roads would go

Gotta pay some dues
Whatever course you choose
There’s hurt on every highway
There’s dirt on every trail

Nobody gets a map
No exit from this trap
There’s no final explanation
The journey is the destination

Angry Won’t Feed Your Chickens

July 2, 2014

wheel

Wheel of fortune
Rollin on
My dreams
Gets me so exasperated
Deeds and outcomes
Ain’t related

Sooner or later
Life’ll kick you
In the ass
No one is immune
Nobody
Gets a pass

Everybody got a reason
To be angry
But angry
Won’t feed your chickens
Angry hurts
And angry sickens

Sooner or later
Life’ll kick you
In the ass
No one is immune
Nobody
Gets a pass

Just try to do
Your best
Cuz fickle
Fate don’t give a damn
So cherish what
Is beautiful
And take it like a man

Sooner or later
Life’ll kick you
In the ass
No one is immune
Nobody
Gets a pass
