Life, The Universe, And Everything

Ran into a few old skeletons today, when I was cleaning out my closet

Had a fit of unhealthy nostalgia, don’t know what could have caused it

 

Started singing songs while I drove around, even in the shower

Funny how a simple memory, can wield such heavy power

 

Well worn tracks of yesterday, I tread with an appraising eye

Saw answers to enigmas, in a sunny Hawaiian sky

 

Hindsight teaches many things, I laugh despite myself

What a convoluted paradox, this dream up on the shelf

 

So clearly do I glimpse the path, where bare feet went astray

How contentment gently finds me here, in sweet grass where I lay

 

When I climbed up from the ditch, the sewage muck and mire

Was reshaped in Desire’s forge, tempered in the fire

 

I gained the strength of knowing who, of what my soul is made

It’s the steel in my spine, when footprints are mislaid

 

The past is a lesson, a journey, of no straight and narrow roads

It winds like the path of a river, and to the sea it gently flows
