Where does distance begin and end in memories ?
I walked into far distances in my mind
And when daylight came they were all left behind .
Is that their rightful place or am I
Just pretending they don’t matter anymore ?
Walking in the green grass of a crop that
Has already failed without rain .
I could replay thousands of scenarios
In high tec logarithmic war games
In my mind just like you .
Life would never slow down for no man ,
In unreality until his or her final breath was blown to smithereens
On the high and wide screen .
What carries us into the next day ?
What doesn’t allow us to see the sunrise ?
I walked in peace and always believed in peace .
Not for me only but for my family .
In other words if I pray for peace for my
Family , that peace is also prayed
Across this fallen earth .
This was my daily routine .
Whether in my job , or in my life , if I
Walked a hundred steps or a hundred miles
Did I not have the right to still take a breath as
I approached the door to my
Home and only abode ?
You stole from me , everything , and from everyone in
Those left behind .
The reasons are many and the reasons are few
When I went down hard without a clue .
The wrong address by someone never taught to spell .
The wrong thinking brain , mashed into mush
By a lifetime of drugs .
So now I am here just outside my own front door
Not able to take a single step
In my dream of walking
Thousands of steps or more .
Just another day anywhere .
