Unsub

Lost

Been lost out there in the wilderness

From Land to Land I searched

From Town to Town I explored

Knowing someday

I’d find a way

 

Been lost out there in the underground

From Isle to Isle I searched

From Beach to Beach I toured

Knowing someday

I’d find my way

 

Time is ticking but I am sure

It won’t be long before

I’m back with you as…

 

…I traverse the lines seeking my route

I’m coming home

I’m coming home to you

Not today, but soon

 

Been lost out there in the wasted lands

From Coast to Coast I searched

From City to City I explored

Knowing someday

I’d find my way

 

Been lost out there in the undergrowth

From Place to Place I searched

From House to House I toured

Knowing someday

I’d find my way

 

Time is ticking but I am sure

It won’t be long before

I’m back with you as…

 

…I criss-cross the route seeking the line

I’m coming home

I’m coming home to you

Not tomorrow but soon

      Andy,

      written recently but not reflective of me now.

      Thanks for the comment,

      Unsub,

      I’ve read this a few times! It resonates more than I thought it would!

      I’ve ‘Been lost’ for a while now. I say enough! With a change of thinking and positive attitude, I’m confident I’ll pull myself out of this dark hole.
      ‘Time is ticking’...
      true...
      so why waste it?
      Making good use of the time that is left is imperative! Shedding all the negativity and finding my way back to my old self is the way to go.
      My Mom has been communicating this message to me through my dreams for the past month. It’s time for me to listen!

      Thank you for sharing this write! It's helping me to focus on what I should do next!

      As always...

          Aaaah mate, an excellent read. Be home soon has so many layered meanings. Really enjoyed it.

          • Unsub

            Saxon,

            yes this is a multi-layered piece so each reader can find a theme that suits them,

            regards

            Unsub.

            Look mate, stay out there longer with your searching cos she'll only have you decorating the place again and, more worrying, i've seen her looking at wardrobes in IKea.

            • Unsub

              Dusk,

              really? Bloody hell, I'll do one more round trip first. LOL!

              Thanks for stalking her whilst I've been away...that's good of you!

              Reminded me of my P.O.S. “Blue”. You’ll certainly find your way in the Tao. Oops, I forgot you don’t dig religion. It’s not one to me, just poetry.

              It’s great to see you experiment. Possibly the shapes of the stanzas could be tightened up.

              • Unsub

                Lawless,

                I do dig religion...about six feet down & then I bury the nonesense.

                Sharpen the stanza's? Can't be arsed truth be told!

                Unsub.

              • myself and me

                So glad you find the way home.

                    33,

                    Maybe our minds are not dumbed down like the masses? A cosmic energy possibly.
