A Far Off Place – poem, by James D. Maxon

26 Oct

A quiet place
A lonely place, where
Scattered dreams start to pace.
Not by air, nor by car
A winding road
It seems so far…

A far off place

I turned left or was it right?
A twisting path into the night.
I stumbled here and I stumbled there
I cannot find it anywhere…

A far off place

A dim light shown
The road not willing.
An easy way out
Seemed fulfilling…

A far off place

Greed and envy
Lust and hate.
The path long gone
Is it too late?…

A far off place

A stream of blood
A trail to follow.
One who’s righteous
Fills with sorrow…

A far off place

My knees give way
I answer the door.
Son of man enters
I fear no more…

A place called home
