The Wrong Road



I was on the road
To having everything
That I was "supposed" to want
A successful and lucrative career
A caring and devoted husband
A nice house in a nice area
Clothes and furniture and cars and vacations
And I really tried to want it all
But I didn't
I just wanted to be alone more
And see more sunrises
And catch up with old friends
And smell more flowers
And read more books
And play more songs
And write more stories
And take more pictures
And watch more films
And have more conversations
That keep me up all night
And I wanted to laugh more
And spend more time on beaches
And ride more waves
And drink more wine
And climb more mountains
And drive along the coast at sunset
So I did
