Remember Everything

After all
I lost
I am not sure
The road knows
My stumbles
That got me through
To the eye in the sky
Playing witness
At the finish line


In a straight line
I can make it
Except this time
I struggle to get over
Dozens of hurdles
I cannot see
What I saw then
It must be false


Listen carefully
Because I must
Lower my head
To avoid getting hurt


I knew it would be hard
With my ears closed
During the escape
Through the field
For a trip
Over the hurdles
Falling face first
Is unfortunately
All I remember
Right now
Before going back

(Now read the poem from bottom to top)

About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.
