alot of my poetry is sometimes written on the journey back home from college (a long journey) in this time i get to think of my mistakes or solutions to problems that sometimes may not even be mine.

am i living a lie,
 shrouding a plan of disappointment,
a rhythm of broken promises,
a path of unplanned mistakes,

am i enjoying the best of it all,
 using my heart appropriately,
i have nothing to hide,
can you see me understand you,

im understanding or at least i try to,
i have disappointed and have been let down,
i greet all those new as a friend,
try to replace the ones i trusted?

its a harsh reality evident in us all,
detest this cliche "nothing lasts forever" everything does,
but not how we want it, our selfish plan.

so once again im alone on the bus,
masking what i can,
with a smile ,
through a window pane.

For years I rode the city bus, and found it to be a wonderful time of introspection. I truly miss that re-awakening opportunity.

God bless you. Kathy
