Never Smart Enough

Never smart enough to succeed
My numb fingers worked to the bone
Dreams of providing a good life
But I need another path to be shown

Empty Streets Late After Dark

Empty streets late after dark

Rain tries to wash away transgression

The anonymous walk back on home

Another night’s bout of depression

Hidden moments of solitude

Lonely stretches of cold concrete

Distant lights seem to fade away

Damp steps along an unknown street

There once was a place to go

Reasons for each & every step

Though all that was lost long ago

Into my bottle of cheap wine I wept
