parallel roads

December 15, 2018


i live in a city of parallel roads
and paths that neither twist nor turn.
a lifetime of decisions made for me
that I try so hard to unlearn.
laid out before me, my future
wrestled from my grip.
my hopes and dreams sit deserted
akin to an abandoned ship
at the bottom of the ocean that is my mind
buried in sand up to the mast
so only a part sticks out, just a reminder
of dreams that couldn't last.
