I Took This Walk
I walked inside a dream to realize I was alive
it seems apparent our lives can have an impact
despite our fantasy suggests we will survive
a selfish need, a voracious appetite to react
with egomaniacal greed,
with hedonistic vanity
it seems we’d not heed
to recognize travesty.
I walked inside a memory that haunts my mind
when sudden was my clarity, my goodness gone
for the sake of wanting no one to ever remind
me of shallow landscapes and a greener lawn.
yes I would like to avoid
my own responsibility
that lonely ill met void
connotes personal vanity.
I am a man who walks the street alone at night
a cognizant soul depends upon a valued light.
I would begin to cry
if love i would deny
to honor any living soul
goodness IS a whole
I took this walk tonight, to confront a lonely flaw.
