Into The Horizon

Once more

into the sunrise


another day

to live

and to die


Once more

into the sunrise


another day

to love

and to cry


Once more

into the rushing river

of headlights and horns


one turn of the wheel

and the pale rider

comes to see you


Once more

through the doors

into a job

where you sell your soul

for a few bucks an hour


But,

what’re all the hours added up?

Your life?

Your soul?

Your time?

Your compromise?



Once more

into the flapping gums of your boss

the dried out old lady

tells you to take out the trash


Once more

into the river

where the metal beetles

and ants

fight the flow of the current

to get where they want to go

without any concern

for the little metal ant

that you are


Once more

through your door

and into your home

where you’re all alone

again


Once more

into the sunset

another day gone

full of silent regret


Once more

into the sunset

your head rest

and you wish

the day you just had

you could

forget


Once more

will be once more

until the days are

nevermore


to live

and to die


to love

and to cry


Until the pale rider

turns the sunrise

into

darkness


-C.H.
