Alone I trudge unbeaten path,
Head bowed low, fraught with sorrow.
As I wander, lost in time,
I’ll cry my tears tomorrow.
Each new day, I face the sun,
Longing for an answer.
Was I right, was I wrong,
Eating me like a cancer,
Imperfect thoughts on troubled sea,
Reasons beyond my reach.
Cavernous desire, the need to learn,
That which life had failed to teach.
Sad memories alone do linger,
Gratification but mere dust.
But I will go on, to do my best,
To learn of love and trust.
At days end, I will face my fears,
Erase my sorrows,
I’ll stand tall, shouting out to all,
I’ll cry no tears for my tomorrows.
