After trying it my way
For so many years
Perhaps, as it turns out,
the “on my own” approach
is not going to work.
You know at some point
After a period of diligence
You begin to suspect
That you have tried enough
both in duration
and now it is safe to say
Well, frankly that way just did not work.
away from the towns
and the well trod lanes,
the avenues and squares
comes the call
the call of the calliope
in hours that should be lost to sleep
and in my mind, visions
in those visions so clear
I dance beneath the bright colored tents
of some long ago fair
dancing to the music of the calliope.
“You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself.”
