THE ROAD TO THE NORTH, LEADS HOME.

THE ROAD TO THE NORTH,

            LEADS HOME


A Poem


Where are you, sweet innocent?

Mother said you must come home.

Where is the boy known to be decent?

Mother misses you, Oh! Come home.


Now, to the highway, I go

Searching for young Roland

For mother wants him home

Before she passes to Beulah land.


All you southern and Western traders

If you see a young  lost soul,

It's my brother, Roland

Oh, tell him 'the northern road leads home'


All you distant merchants

Tell Roland not to be aghast

For the footpath to the north

Is the road that leads home.


He must come home

And help in building the falling walls,

He must not stay there anymore,

For mother wants him home.


Tell him his home is in desolation

And now is the time for reconciliation

That we must all come home

And never again leave home.

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
