I joined a challenge to create a poem inspired by the word “road”. And because I am me, I came up with something that wasn’t just about roads, long and winding as some  may be. 


Somewhere along that road
you will see
The footsteps I left behind,
so you could follow me.

Can’t you see the rocks on the road
that I’ve left behind?
It’s for you to find me here
going almost out my mind.

Sitting here, on the dusty pavement
they call the road side,
Saying no to the kind old man
who’s offering me a ride.

I shall wait for you even when
the darkness starts to fall.
I shall stay here and wait for you
even when you don’t heed my call.
