Back to Start

by Thomas K. Hunt

You sipped from the cup of innocence When you should have taken a big long drink Now you live in your life of experience Do you ever stop and think? Circumstances beyond control Who's the puppet? Who pulls the strings? Leaning towards the age of old Stop, and think of things The sun will rise tomorrow Another day left behind Staying one step ahead of sorrow Running fast but losing time There was a true understanding Reveled from a heart one night Through my eyes but much younger Another one who sees the light The soul still wanders In directions lost from sight So many crossroads Hard to chose left from right Tears from true hurting Real pain within a heart Missing what is yearning Wishing to go back to start

this hurts...the pain and regret and the feeling of starting over...that line, staying one step ahead of sorrow....sets the whole tone. Great writing.
