Long Road Home

by Adrian Calhoun

When the names no longer have faces,
and the towns all begin to look the same.
There is no more drive,
no more fight left within.
The embers of a long dead fire,
have grown cold.

All that's left is a long road,
that slowly leads me home.

On a tangible level this really hits home. Been there and done that! LOL! When things get too much the same and the hours seem to just go by in a haze it is time to pull over and sleep!!! On a spiritual level it's time to get alone with God for a while and get the 'batteries' recharged! :)

It seems that every road eventually leads us home. Aren't you glad that you have me to come home to? LOL I'll keep the homefires burning.
