Off The Beaten Track....

I remember
when he begged me to show him
who he really was
I told him I can't do that
I'm still finding myself
so he made me
who he thought he needed
and I just went along for the ride
the wild wild ride
that turned out to be
the last place I ever wanted to be
as it does
when you don't buy your own ticket
and you're just a passenger in your own life
this time I'll drive my own train
and I have painted on the rails
a track to somewhere
not written in bloody code upon my arm
a journey of my own choosing
to where I want to be
with whom I wish to travel
my suitcase laying empty at my feet
the story of me is guided now
by my own pen
and maybe
if you want me to
I will sign your page
and you wont ever forget
I have been there

Guess I'm in that kind of place this week people.....
life goes on relentlessly
