Music From Another Life

Music From Another Life

The path I came upon,
I never did foresee.
Hostage to the muse
was what I had to be.

Then a limitless horizon,
a nearness to the truth.
Endless days that lead ahead,
the innocence of youth.

Now the nearing of a shoreline,
a yearning unresolved.
The hollow ticking of a clock,
a puzzle never solved.

The soul’s vast hall of mysteries
for me now reveals the door.
Each day another closer step
until there are no more.

Apologies are done,
nothing more to say.
Art never was a choice I made.
I was born this way.
