The long road

The long road

A Poem by Nick.B
"

Dreaming of the long road

"
Have you felt the pain,
of a dream that was never gained?

Now, maybe I'm no billionaire,
and I still don't care,
maybe I don't own plane
in my life I got carried away,
don't think I own a fast car
on the fast road I'm no threat,

Standing here in the dark, looking at the moon to spark,
no effect in my mind,
Here I go again, trying to go back,
even though back home I'm considered a fool,
maybe they're right, who knows?
Hiding behind a dream, thinking of some lie to tell them.

Daddies little girl wants a brand new car,
she's dreaming of an alibi,
"Honey I need you right now,
 you can't just drive as far as you need"
He wants her home with any expense


Early one morning the sun was shining,
a playboy woke up from his bed,
wondering if he's still the same, if his life was not away,
his folks never dreamed for all this, sure it was really rough
he never did like his mamas way of life, his papa's wasn't there enough
Heading off for the west coast, he had a dream getting through

Abandoned all his problems back home
looking in the mirror thinking back to his road
"Don't you think, I better be my way back home?"

We all dreamed of something big, we all thought that we're not average, that we're bigger than anything, maybe unbeatable, that's maybe true who knows? But then life hit like the express train, so we're still back to the basic plan, keep dreaming....(the poem has three main stories)

Great job, Nick... i loved this poem. I was totally lost into the word of art. We all make dreams.. see dreams but yes it's true buddy life then suddenly hits everything and we come down on the ground and re-start again making something new ... dreams make us happy but life always shows us our limit. What a wonderful poem ...Nick, you penned on. Loved the title too. Beautiful work of art.

Well this is a familiar road, everyone has their opinion but we have to find our own road and keep our foot on the gas...

You are welcome...:)
The character in the poem experiences the opinion of group of people that earn their living through sweat and see life one way while the character in the poem sees life from another point of view maybe motivated by the technology around him that cause him to take an intellectual artist road that his surroundings don't understand because of the surroundings that maybe they were brought up in, the best way is to move forward until the finish line and ignore anybody or anything that tries to get on our way of succeding is our life and nobody else's business.

When roads are compelled to get together may end up in chaos.....its better to let them head in their own way to make peace....
