    My Feet Are Tired From My Journey...Where Is The Prize?

    All my life I tried to do what people were suppose to do. Graduate, go to college, work, buy a home etc... I always thought and hoped everything else I couldn't do would fall into place. I recall all the sacrifices with going to college, thinking I could do things on my own and...

    Wandering The Path

    I have walked my path blindly, For years without end. Now I travel alone, I've lost my best friend. For 28 years now, I gave you my heart. You took it and ripped it, Now it's torn apart. Tattered and broken, Thrown to the ground. You stomped it and kicked it, And flung it...

    Every Human Heart

    There is not a heart that has its moments of longing, yearning for something better, nobler, holier than it knows, a road thats not so lonely and shadowed with pain and guilt. In my worst times when the road ahead seems impossible and thunder and storms threatens to rip my world...

    But It's A Familiar Path

    And as I walk along, I see many things I might not have seen if I had not been walking alone that day.

    This Just Happens To Be My Theme Song.

    I walk a lonely road the only one I have ever known, my shadow IS THE ONLY ONE WHO WALKS BESIDE ME. Most people who claim to be lonely or a loner are not really the true form. But conversely it is amusing to note how many people who do not...

    As The Song Says.....

    As the song says, "I walk a lonely road, the only road that I have ever known...." I do walk a very lonely road, but it's the only road that I have ever known.   All hail Green Day lol, my favorite band.

    Self Imposed

    When the world collapses around me and I don't know how to cope, I isolate. Get rid of anyone in my life who might be able to help. Because I'm worried about their reaction, what they might think. I don't want to be judged, or coddled, or patronized. I seem to get into bad...

    Sure I have friends but mentally I'm alone on

    this journey we call life. Nobody stands next to me and understands how I look at the world. I'm sure someone thinks the same thoughts as I do but they don't show it or I haven't met them yet. So for now I'm walking past each day and waiting for someone who understands my...

    Full Of My Broken Dreams

    Never had anyone to walk beside me, I prefer to go my own road anyway, so nobody else gets hurt and I hate following the crowd, the only problem is the road I have chosen to walk, is a lonely, untravelled one. There are loads of times where I want to turn back, but I can't...

    The only one that I have ever known Don't know

    where it goes But it's home to me and I walk alone In my opinion we all walk our own lonely road. Some are close with others so we walk near them everyday. And maybe some we only cross once if the time is right. Others we may walk beside and never see because the paths were...

    Then And Now

    It was crooked, empty. No one was there. I felt so alone No lights, no people Even the stars and the moon hide The sunrise never did show-up It was dim, very dark. I was blinded with tears It went through the years I still walk a lonely road But I am not oblivious of the way...

    It is very lonely and desolate,you know the tumbleweeds, well there aren't even those around! No people, no trees, no water, just a dry barren landscape, almost like a desert, but you just know there was life there before and now it has all been reduced to arid sand and dust...
