Streets & Avenues
Author: Pamela O'Brien


I've been travelling down Reflective Street
For quite some time now
I thought if I swung a left
I'd reach the main road back to town
Instead, there is a dead end
So I am forced to turn around

Ran into a friend on Memory Lane
He was hoping to find me there
The two of us are strolling aimlessly
Trying to find Self-Discovery Square
If we get lost along the way
I don't think either one of us will care

Wound up alone on Routine Avenue
Stopped to grab a city map
Perhaps to trace my way back home
Or in an attempt to never go back
But all of the highways look the same
Just like a splintered one-way track

Tried walking toward Future Trail
With no idea as to where it would lead
Learning a lot about myself
In this desperate time of need
Interesting, the things you discover
While walking down an unknown street......

I loved this poem. it had something neat about it, maybe it ws the style or wording...I'm not sure. Nonetheless, it was great.

Thanks Ash!

I wrote this one to be kind of humorously unique, but with a very serious undertone of emotions. I am glad you liked the streets and avenues of my mind :o)
